In a recent development, a young man's statement regarding the Ahom community of Assam has drawn widespread criticism from all quarters after he drew parallels between the Ahom community of Assam and Chinese culture, triggering a debate on cultural sensitivity and understanding.

The contentious remarks were made during a podcast on 'Enchanted Studios' YouTube channel, leading to widespread backlash.

The individual, named Adeed Rahman, argued that the Ahom community, native to Assam, bears cultural similarities with the Chinese. He pointed to perceived similarities, including the depiction of dragons in both Ahom and Chinese cultures. He further stressed that the Ahom culture is markedly different from the wider Assamese culture.

Rahman's recent assertions about the differences between Ahom and traditional Assamese marriage customs have added fuel to the ongoing debate.

His use of the term 'total Chinese' in reference to the Ahom customs has sparked significant outrage within the Assamese community.

The video of his statement, which has been widely circulated on social media platforms, has quickly gained attention and drawn criticism. Many individuals, including Ahom community members and Assamese cultural enthusiasts, have denounced Rahman's remarks as culturally insensitive and historically inaccurate.

The recent controversy involving 'Enchanted Studios' has sparked a heated debate on social media platforms. Users have taken to these platforms to voice their opinions, with many demanding an apology and retraction of contentious statements.

The controversy led to an influx of comments on the studio's YouTube channel. In response, 'Enchanted Studios' has made the video in question private, rendering it unavailable for public viewing.
