Recently, an organization named ‛Assam Miya(Asomiya) Parishad’ set up a museum. And that drew huge controversy and criticism. CM Himanta Biswa Sarma criticized such attempts. After this, the Goalpara administration sealed the museum and detained president of the organization M Mahar Ali and arrested general secretary Abdul Baten Seikh. 

CM said, ‛Barring Lungi, the items kept in the museum as Miya heritages are under use among various ethnic groups of Assam for generations. How can the plough be a Miya heritage? Various ethnic groups have been using this agricultural instrument in the state from the tome immemorial. They need to reply to the goverment how they can claim various items used by the ethnic groups of Assam as theirs.’
