Lasit would have said, "Dexotkoi lungi dangor nohoi"

I am not into mind reading Ram. Less so of people long gone. Besides, *I* am no fan of Lasit's act , make that whack; that made him a kharkhowa hero. It has something to do with my abhorrence for applauding or holding in high esteem an act of playing accuser, prosecutor, judge, jury and executioner by the same person. But if I were to guess, considering that many Ahoms and other indigenous people took to Islam, voluntarily, and considering that in those days the act of beef-eating was not that big a sin, particularly for the Ahoms, the Lungi Menace would not have been a menace at all, much less the scourge it appears to be to some of our latter day Oxomiyas.
But Mirjumla's army was a wholly different issue. It had nothing do with Aurangjeb's religion , their dietary habits or which way they faced to say their prayers or being cut or intact; but everything to do with defending against an invader.

That will depend on the degree of paranoia one harbors on the Great
Lungi Menace :-).
