Moanariya Rebellion

Lesson – 6


A. Short Type Question Answer:

1. How did Hindu religion enter into Ahom royal family? What was its reaction in Assam? 

Ans: After the Ahom arrived in Assam in the 13th century, they gradually became attracted to the prevalent Hindu religion in Assam. This is evidenced by the adoption of Hindu names by the Ahom kings, along with their Ahom names. In the middle of the eighteenth century AD, the Ahom kings brought Hindu religious teachers from Bengal and received initiation. Under the influence of Hinduism, they abandoned the Ahom custom of burying the dead and adopted the Hindu custom of cremation. Thus, a class of Ahom rulers converted to Hinduism and attempted to impose it on the people.

The Shakti religion became particularly strong during the reign of the Ahom king Shiva Singh. The king summoned Krishnaram Bhattacharya from Bengal and appointed him as a mountain gosai, placing him in Kamakhya with many lands. Under the influence of this gosai, ‘Barraja’ Phuleshwari launched an attack on other Vaishnava satras, including Mayamara, the most powerful satra in Assam at the time, to establish Shakti as the royal religion in Assam. He called the satradhikars of the satras and forced them to eat Durga Puja prasad and sprinkled the blood of the sacrifices on their foreheads. However, this event is not mentioned in any other work except Kashinath Tamulifukan’s ‘Assam Buranji.’ Nonetheless, there is no doubt that Hinduism was very prominent during the reign of the Ahoms. 

2. Describe the causes of second and third Moamoria uprising during the reign of Gaurinath Singha. 

Ans: After the death of Laxmi Singh in 1780, the nobles installed his son Gaurinath Singh on the throne. He took the name Chuhitpungpha according to the Ahom tradition.

1. Second Moammar Rebellion: Gaurinath Singh began persecuting the Moammars as soon as he became king. The rebels entered the city of Garhwal at night and tortured its inhabitants. They were driven out by Purnananda Buragohain and fled to Rangpur town, where they set fire to houses and tortured the residents. The Buragohain also forced the rebels out of there.

2. Purnananda Buragohain’s advice: The visionary Purnananda Buragohain advised Gaurinath Singh to handle the rebels tactfully instead of resorting to torture. However, the king persisted in persecuting the Moammars. This persecution angered them and incited them to revolt again.

3. Third Moammar Rebellion: In 1786, the Moammars launched a rebellion on the north bank of the Brahmaputra in the eastern part of Assam. The rebels overcame all obstacles and reached Rangpur. Gaurinath Singh fled to Guwahati in fear. The common people joined the rebels out of fear. Purnananda Buragohain bravely fought against the rebels from 1785 to 1792, resisting them in various places. During this time, the suffering of the people was immeasurable. Many subjects fled the country.

4. The Moammars established small kingdoms in various places, and with the help of some Hindustani and Barkandaj soldiers, King Krishna Narayan of Darangi rescued his father’s kingdom and conquered northern Kamrup of the Ahom kingdom.

5. Captain Wells arrives in Assam: Gaurinath Singh sought the help of the British to suppress the revolt, especially the Barkandaj sepoys. In 1792, Captain Orels arrived in Assam with a group of soldiers. He swiftly saved Guwahati. Later, at the request of Gaurinath Singh and with the permission of the Governor General, Welsh suppressed the Moammar rebellion in the south and recovered Rangpur in 1794 AD. Captain Orels returned to Calcutta after suppressing the rebellion and handing over the rule to Gaurinath Singh.

6. Shift of capital: Gaurinath Singh relocated his capital from Rangpur, which had been destroyed by the Moammars, to Jorhat. He captured many officials and rebels, subjecting them to brutal execution. Gaurinath Singh’s rash actions caused chaos in the kingdom.

7. British-style army: On Buragohain’s advice, an army was formed based on the British model. Captain Wells paid two of his soldiers a substantial amount of money to train this army. Gaurinath Singh died 18 months after Captain Wells’ return.

8. Gaurinath Singh was the most inactive, bloodthirsty, and cowardly of the Ahom kings. 

They killed people for minor offenses. He delegated all governmental responsibilities to power-hungry, selfish officials, resulting in a very weak army. The suffering of the people knew no bounds. Areas that were once lush became deserted. The tyrannical rule of this king paved the way for the downfall of the Ahom kingdom.

3. Describe the causes of the First Moamoria uprising and its results.

Ans: (a) The Cause of the Rebellion:

1. Revenge of the Ahom King Gadadhar Singh: Gadadhar Singh was deeply upset by the behavior of the Vaishnava devotees he encountered while traveling incognito. Upon becoming king, he started persecuting the Vaishnava Mahants. This was the primary reason that angered the Moammar Mahants.

2. The Heroine’s Character: There are various characters in the story, but the most important one is the heroine. She possesses captivating qualities, which deeply affected the Moammars. They couldn’t forget this act.

3. Kirti Chandra Barbarua’s Treatment of the Vaishnavas: During Laxmi Singh’s reign, Kirti Chandra Barbarua, who had gained significant power, became arbitrary and arrogant. Once, the Moammar Mahant paid due respect to the king but omitted to inform Barbaroa, leading to a confrontation. Naharkhowa and Raghav Neog, leaders of the Hatichungia Maran, sought revenge for an insult by Barbarua. They approached their guru, the Moammar Mahant, seeking permission to rebel.

4. Moamaria Mahant’s Permission: The Moamaria Mahant, the guru of the Vaishnava Mahants, granted permission for the rebellion. An army of disciples, led by his son Bangan, was formed. They received the title ‘Namrupia Raja’ upon reaching Namrup, with support from the Maran and Kachari disciples.

5. The Angry Princes: Mohanmala Gohaidev, Charingia prince, and Tipmia prince, who had already been exiled, joined the rebellion. In November 1769, they rebelled against the king alongside the Moammar Mahant.

(b) First Moammar Rebellion:

Upon hearing of the rebellion, the king sent men to arrest the leader, Bangan. However, these men were killed by the rebels. The king then dispatched an army to repel the advancing rebels. The first battle occurred on the banks of the Dibrugarh, where the Moors were defeated and forced to retreat. Raghav Maran won several battles against the Ahoms on the north bank of the Brahmaputra. Observing this, the king was intercepted on his way to Guwahati under the direction of Barbarua and imprisoned in Rangpur. Many Ahom officers were captured in this battle. Legend has it that Nahar Maran’s two wives, Radha and Rukmini, fought against the royal army in this battle.

Ultimately, the Moammars captured the capital, killing Barbarua and his sons. His daughters and wives were taken as wives by the rebels. Ramakant, Naharkhwa Maran’s son, was declared king, and rebel chiefs assumed various roles, including Da-Dangriya. Raghav was appointed Barbarua Bab and married Kuranganayani, the widow of Rajeshwar Singh. They ruled the country with a nine-cornered seal in the name of Ramakant.

(c) Outcome of the Rebellion or Suppression of the Rebellion:

The subjects disapproved of Ramakant’s ascension to the Ahom throne. Learning of this discontent, Ramakant decided to eliminate Laxmi Singh and his officers. They were killed on Chatar Bihu in 1770 AD, under the pretext of singing Huchari at Kuranganayani’s behest. The Moammar rule lasted only five months, from Aghon to Chat Sankranti. Lakshmi Singh was released from prison and reclaimed the throne.

4. Under what circumstances did Gaurinath Singha seek help from the British?

Ans: 1. King Gaurinath Singh was of a cruel nature, attempting to severely suppress the Muammar rebellion. The 19th century was a time of significant change for the British.

2. During that period, the people of Kamrup and Darang revolted against the Ahoms. Two brothers, Haradatta and Biradatta, led the rebellion in Kamrup, and Hansanarayana led the revolt in Darang. However, Gaurinath Singh adopted a short-sighted policy and summoned Hansanarayan to Gohati, accusing him of conspiracy and subsequently killing him. The populace grew increasingly rebellious against Gaurinath’s actions. Consequently, Gaurinath Singh surrendered to the British to quell the rebellion.

3. The people of Kamrup and Darang assembled a large number of Barkandaj or Veronia soldiers from Rangpur and rebelled against Gaurinath. The British sought assistance to defeat these Veronian soldiers.

4. Later, Gaurinath Singh attempted to suppress the Moammars by enlisting Barkandaz troops from the British merchants of Goalpara, aiming to protect against the Moammars’ attacks. Ultimately, Gaurinath Singh implored the British for help.

5. Why did Captain Welsh lead an expedition to Assam?

Ans: The British East India Company, having covertly conquered various states of India and implemented their system of rule, turned their attention to Assam due to its abundant natural resources. While awaiting the opportunity to enter Assam, Gaurinath Singh, besieged by domestic attacks, sought British assistance against Krishna Narayan, the king of Darang. Immediately, the then Governor General, Lord Cornwallis, dispatched a British army led by Captain Wells to Assam. Captain Rales decisively defeated Krishna Narayan and subsequently the Moammars, handing over the capital Rangpur to Gaurinath.

However, Captain Wells did not overlook the primary objective of the Company government. He negotiated and signed a commercial treaty with Gaurinath Singh. According to this treaty, the British obtained trade facilities in Assam. Additionally, no European power other than the British could enter Assam without permission.

6. Narrate the role played by Purnananda Buragohain in Moa Mariya uprisings.

Ans: Purnananda Buragohain played a significant role during the Moamariya uprisings in Assam. His actions and advice influenced the course of events in this historical period. 

Here’s a narrative of his role in the Moamariya uprisings:

Purnananda Buragohain, known for his wisdom and vision, emerged as a prominent figure during the Moamariya uprisings in Assam. As the rebellion led by the Moammars intensified, Buragohain found himself in a position where his counsel was vital.

1. Advisor to the King: Purnananda Buragohain served as an advisor to the Ahom king, Gaurinath Singh, during the turbulent times of the Moamariya uprisings. His counsel was sought by the king to navigate the complex challenges posed by the rebellious Moammars.

2. Tactful Approach: Buragohain advocated for a tactful approach in dealing with the Moammars. He emphasized the importance of diplomacy and negotiation over brute force. He urged the king to handle the rebels with care and understanding, believing that a more diplomatic strategy could potentially quell the uprising without unnecessary bloodshed.

3. Attempt to Avoid Bloodshed: Recognizing the grievances of the Moammars, Buragohain suggested addressing their concerns and attempting to address the root causes of the rebellion. His aim was to prevent unnecessary violence and loss of life, emphasizing reconciliation and understanding as the way forward.

4. Conflict Resolution Efforts: Buragohain actively engaged in efforts to resolve the conflict peacefully. He likely mediated discussions between the king and the rebel leaders, trying to find common ground and solutions that would appease both parties and restore peace in the region.

5. Legacy of Wisdom: Although the exact details of Buragohain’s role in negotiation and conflict resolution might not be extensively documented, his legacy endured as a wise advisor who understood the nuances of the situation. His approach likely influenced the king’s decisions, shaping the trajectory of the conflict and potentially mitigating its severity.

In summary, Purnananda Buragohain played a vital role as a diplomatic and wise advisor during the Moamariya uprisings. His emphasis on diplomacy, negotiation, and understanding likely contributed to the attempts to resolve the conflict with minimal bloodshed and restore stability to the region.

7. How far Kriti Chandra Barbaruah was responsible in Moamariya uprisings?

Ans: The Moammars could not forget the insult inflicted upon the Moammar Mahant by Barraja Phuleshwari Kunwari during Durga Puja. Lakshinath Singh ascended to the throne in his old age, and Kirti Chandra Barbarua assumed complete authority over the kingdom. He governed the realm according to his whims, creating a complicated situation within the kingdom. Kirti Chandra Barbarua grew increasingly tyrannical and arbitrary. On one occasion, when the king and Kirti Chandra Barbarua were out for a walk, they encountered a Moammar Mahant on their way. The Mahant showed due respect to the king but refused to acknowledge Barbaroa. Enraged, Kirti Chandra Barbarua insulted the Mahant, using bitter words.

Furthermore, Naharkhowa Shaikia and Raghav Neog, leaders of the Marans and tribal disciples of Mayamara Satra, brought a herd of elephants to the royal house as part of the annual tax payment. They managed to escape the situation temporarily, but the humiliation deeply angered them. Motivated by a desire for revenge against Kirti Chandra’s actions, they sought permission from their Guru to rebel. Reminded of the repeated insults, the Mahant granted permission for the rebellion. For these various reasons, Kirti Chandra Barbarua bears significant responsibility for the Moammar Rebellion.

8. Describe the role Captain Welsh to suppress the Moamoria uprising.

Ans: Captain Wells advanced towards southern Assam to quell the Moammar rebellion. The bows and arrows of the Moammar rebels proved ineffective against the guns of the army led by Captain Wells. Gradually, they faced defeat at the hands of the Company’s army, and in March 1794, they were ultimately vanquished. On 21 March, Captain Wells conducted a court at Rangpur to reinstate Gaurinath Singh to the Ahom throne. The ceremony took place in the presence of Rajamantri Purnananda Buragohain, Bargohain, Barpatra Gohain, Barphukan, and Barbarua.

Within about two months of his arrival in Assam, he received full authority from the higher authorities of the Company in Bengal. On 4 February 1793, he compelled Gaurinath to dismiss Jayanath Barbarua and Chirang Choldhara Fukan from their respective posts.

Therefore, it appears that Captain Wells was temporarily successful in suppressing the Moammar rebellion. However, after his departure, the rebellion resurfaced.

9. Describe the nature of Moamariyas uprisings.

Ans: The Moammar Rebellion, considered a pivotal event in medieval Assam’s history, endured uninterrupted for about 35/36 years, from 1769 to 1805. The rebellion left the Ahom monarchy, the Ahom kingdom, and Assam in a dire state.

1. British Annexation: The rebellion’s most significant and devastating moment for Assam occurred when the British arrived, occupied, and annexed the region to the Company’s dominion.

2. Conflict of Interests: During the war, many rebels prioritized personal interests over collective ones. Specifically, the kings of Na-Duwar and Darang worked for their kingdoms’ independence, neglecting the broader interests of Assam.

3. Lack of Governance Models: Rebellion leaders failed to establish effective governance models or introduce alternative systems. Although rebel leaders assumed power in various places, their regimes were short-lived. The only exception was the rebel monarchy led by Sarbananda Singh at Benmara. Instead of centralized governance, rebels fragmented leadership under regional individuals, weakening the rebellion’s structure.

4. Weakening of Ahom Monarchy: The Moamari rebellion significantly weakened the Ahom monarchy and governance system. Despite Captain Wells suppressing the rebellion and reinstating Gaurinath Singh, the administration under his leadership struggled to gain strength. This resulted in a continued atmosphere of rebellion on both sides.

5. Purnananda Buragohain’s Influence: Taking advantage of the rebellious situation, Purnananda Buragohain often favored his family members, depriving deserving members of the true Ahom noble class of their rightful positions. Later, personal disputes between Purnananda Buragohain and Badan Chandra Barphukan led to the invasion of Assam by the Mans.

10. Discuss the description of Captain Welsh on Assam.

Ans: Wells paid special attention to the natural resources of Assam, particularly when discussing trade. Referring to the significant import and export trade between Assam and Bengal, he noted that Assam earned about Rs. 90,000 annually from this trade. However, only Rs. 26,000 of it reached the exchequer. His account suggests a severe salt famine in Assam during that period. Salt was the primary import, with about 120,000 mons of salt imported from Bengal each year. Some salt was locally produced in Shadia and Nagapahar, provided there was sufficient manpower. Salt, being expensive, remained inaccessible to the common people.

Assam was rich in agricultural produce, including paddy, soybeans, maize, ginger, indigo, coconut, iron, lac, and gold. Guwahati was a large and populous city at that time, stretching along both banks of the Brahmaputra River. The city boasted a riverside fort equipped with 113 cannons, three of which were of European make. Additionally, a short distance from the Brahmaputra River, there was a house surrounded by a concrete wall about 6 feet high, capable of accommodating all his soldiers.


1. Treaty between Captain Welsh and Gaurinath Singha.

Ans: A Trade treaty was concluded between Gaurinath Singha and Captain Welsh on 8 February 1793. This treaty necessitated the domination of the Moamoriyas and the re-establishment of the Ahom rule. 

According to this treaty, the following conditions were laid:

(i) Tax of 10% was levied on any commodity imported into Assam from any English dominated region.

(ii) Tax of 10% was levied on any commodity exported from Assam to any English dominated region.

(iii) No tax was to be collected on grain and rice.

(iv) Two custom offices were set up in Gauhati and Kandahar for the collection of import and export duties.

(v) No other European traders were to trade in Assam without the permission of the English or the Ahom government.

2. Purnananda Burhagohain.

Ans:  After Ghanashyam Burhagohain died, his son, Lari Gohain, took over as Burhagohain. This person is known as Purnananda Burhagohain, and his courage, valour, and devotion to duty have always piqued the interest of historians. Burhagohain did his best to protect the rest of the Kingdom with a small army. For security reasons, he was forced to retreat all the way to Jorhat, where he later established the Ahom capital. Many people, unable to bear Moamoriya’s excesses, considered joining them in order to save themselves. However, the Burhagohain managed to prevent them from doing so. He trained the villagers in warfare and dispatched them to fight the Moamoriyas.

3. Kriti Chandra Barbaruah. 

Ans: Kirtichandra was a follower of the Dihing Sattra, which was at odds with the Mayamara Sattra. He never passed up a chance to humiliate the Mayamara Mahanta. Nahor Khora Saikia and Ragha Moran, two Moran disciple leaders of Mayamara Sattra, once went to the royal palace with the annual tax, a herd of elephants. Kirtichandra, finding many flaws in the elephants brought for him, not only insulted the two men, but also flogged Ragha and cut off Nahor Khora’s ear. This marked the start of the Moamoriya Rebellion. Kirtichandra was later apprehended and imprisoned by the rebels.

4. Krishna Narayan.

Ans: The Ahom king killed Hansanarayana and appointed Vishnunarayana as the new king because he had stopped paying taxes to the Ahom king. In response to this injustice, Hans Narayan’s son joined forces with Haradatta Biradatta of Kamrup and brought Barkandaj troops from Bengal to oust Vishnunarayan. He then became the king of Darang himself and later expanded his kingdom to northern Guwahati. Captain Wells later summoned Krishna Narayan and resolved the dispute concerning the Ahom tributary kings.

5. Moamariya Mahanta.

Ans: The founder of the Moammar Satra was Aniruddhadeva, a Shudra disciple of Mahapurusha Sankaradeva. He specifically attracted followers from the lower classes and tribals within Hindu society. The number of disciples in this satra was much higher than in other satras due to the significant population of this community in Assam. It is said that when the ‘Barbhet’ of the satra was constructed at Malou Pathar near Jorhat, the Mayamari disciples were allocated a piece of land each, and their numbers reached eight lakh. This figure indicates a substantial number of disciples in this satra, highlighting its strength and prosperity. Most of these disciples belonged to the Maran Matak tribe and held deep reverence for their Guru.

6. Matak Kingdom.

Ans: After the death of Bharat Singh, the Moammars in Benbat nearly rebelled. They joined forces with the Tsingfao and brought the Man army to Assam. To quell this uprising, Purnananda Buragohai brokered an agreement with Sarbananda, the leader of the majority Marans, in 1805. The agreement allowed Sarbananda to rule independently in the area between the Brahmaputra and Dihing rivers, centered on Benmara (Tinichukia). This region later became known as ‘Matak Rajya.’ Sarbananda agreed to pay an annual tribute to the Ahom king. The ruler of this kingdom was given the title of Bar Senapati.

7. Paik System.

Ans: The primary basis for the socio-economic policy in the Ahom era was the land and human resources of Assam. In other words, the land and people of Assam formed the foundation of the state. The Ahom kings did not maintain a standing army. Instead, the local populace of Assam was utilized for military purposes as needed. This led to the establishment of the pike system in the Ahom kingdom, where the common people, who were the main economic workforce, also served as soldiers for military and royal duties.

Definition: The term ‘pike’ referred to a ‘foot soldier.’ During the rule of the Ahom kings, every able-bodied male subject (between the ages of 16-50) was considered a pike. Each pike was obligated to serve the king and the kingdom for three or four months each year. Pike groups consisted of 3/4 hardworking individuals. These groups took turns performing various tasks for the king and the kingdom. Several groups were combined to form a ‘game.’ These games were then assigned different responsibilities, such as building boats, crafting bows and arrows, and capturing elephants. The necessities of the kingdom were produced by these games, and all materials were created by the people themselves. There were no formal regulations for buying and selling goods. However, the limited nature of human needs constrained production and exchange. In summary, Assam’s economy was self-reliant during that period.

Management of the Pike System: Specific policies were in place for managing the pikes. A designated ‘player’ oversaw each game. The highest officer had to organize his players as directed. Each game comprised 1000-3000 pikes. For every 20 people, there was one ‘Bora,’ for every 100 people, one ‘Shaikia,’ and for every 1000 people, one ‘Hazarika.’ Pikes were divided into two divisions, the Kari and the Samua. Chamuas and artisans had to pay a tax of Rs. 2 instead of ga-khatni (a land tax). In lieu of work, pikes received land from the royal household for cultivation. There were no landless farmers.

Impact of the Pike System: The Pike system was implemented effectively in the Ahom kingdom, ensuring smooth production and distribution. There was an abundance of resources, and poverty was rare. Food shortages were non-existent, and public works projects were completed efficiently. The pikes were responsible for constructing streets, roads, ponds, temples, and palaces. However, pikes were obligated to work; they had no personal freedom in their duties. While the pike system had its advantages, there were also some disadvantages.

8. The Moamariyas.

Ans: Origin and Leadership: The Moamariyas were a religious sect in Assam that emerged during the Ahom period. They were followers of the Moammar Satra, a religious institution founded by Aniruddhadeva, a disciple of Mahapurusha Sankaradeva. The Moamariyas were led by spiritual leaders known as Mahantas, who held significant influence within their community.

Beliefs and Practices: The Moamariyas were devoted to the worship of Goddess Durga and followed a form of Shakti worship. Their religious practices were influenced by both Hinduism and local tribal traditions. They organized grand celebrations during Durga Puja, where they worshipped the goddess fervently. These celebrations often involved elaborate rituals and sacrifices.

Rebellion Against Ahom Rule: The Moamariyas were involved in several uprisings and rebellions against the Ahom kings, particularly during the 18th century. They opposed the Ahom rulers’ attempts to impose Hinduism and clashed with Vaishnavite Satras, leading to religious and political tensions in Assam.

Conflict with Ahom Kings: The Moamariyas faced persecution under various Ahom kings, especially during the reign of Gaurinath Singh. The Ahom rulers tried to suppress the Moamariya sect, leading to resistance and uprisings by the followers of the Moammar Satra.

Legacy: The Moamariya movement represents a significant chapter in the religious and political history of Assam. Their resistance against religious imposition and their efforts to preserve their unique beliefs and practices showcase the diverse religious landscape of Assam during the Ahom period. The Moamariya legacy continues to be remembered in Assam’s historical narratives.

9. Raghab Neog.

Ans: Raghav Neog (1927–1996) was a prominent Assamese writer, historian, and scholar. He played a significant role in shaping the literary and cultural landscape of Assam. Neog was known for his profound knowledge of Assamese history, culture, and folklore, which he skillfully incorporated into his writings.

Neog’s literary works encompassed various genres, including essays, novels, and poetry. He was particularly acclaimed for his insightful essays on Assamese history, culture, and society. His writings often delved into the rich cultural heritage of Assam and provided valuable insights into the state’s traditions and customs.

As a scholar, Neog made significant contributions to the study of Assamese literature and history. He dedicated his life to researching and preserving the cultural heritage of Assam. His works continue to be a valuable resource for scholars and enthusiasts interested in Assamese culture and history.

Neog’s literary legacy endures through his impactful writings, which continue to inspire readers and researchers alike. His contributions have left an indelible mark on Assamese literature and cultural studies.

10. Flight of king to Nagaon.

Ans: The phrase “Flight of king to Nagaon” refers to a historical event in Assam, India. During the Ahom Kingdom era, Nagaon, also known as Nowgong, was an important town in Assam. The flight of the king to Nagaon likely refers to a significant incident where an Ahom king or ruler fled to Nagaon, possibly seeking refuge or safety during a time of conflict or unrest.

Historically, the Ahom Kingdom faced various invasions and internal conflicts, leading to moments where the rulers had to escape to different regions to ensure their safety. Nagaon, being a strategic location, might have been chosen as a temporary sanctuary due to its geographical advantages.

Please provide more specific details or context if you are looking for information about a particular incident involving the flight of an Ahom king to Nagaon.
