Shillong, May 14: The Maitshaphrang has urged both the central and state government to give due recognition to Ka Phan Nonglait as one of the great freedom fighters of the country.

In a statement, Maitshaprang convener Michael Syiem said it is great news that finally a book on Ka Phan Nonglait, the first Khasi woman freedom fighter and authored by Supreme Court lawyer Daniel Stone Lyngdoh, a descendent of Phan Nonglait, has been released.

According to the book, Phan Nonglait not only assisted freedom fighter U Tirot Sing Syiem in their battle against the British but was also instrumental in killing 32 British soldiers.

Syiem also recalled that the Maitshaphrang together with the Seng Samla Jaiaw Laitdom had staged a street play titled “Ka Drama jong ka Phan Nonglait” in different localities of Shillong and in Nongkhlaw village in the year 1994 and 1995 to highlight her contributions in the freedom struggle.

“With the release of this book we urge both the central and state government to give due recognition to Ka Phan Nonglait as one of the great freedom fighters of the country,” he said.
