THE ARYAN INVASION OF INDIA QUESTIONED IN THE WESTERN TEXTBOOKS
Even today one can see "Brahmins go home (to Central Asia)," painted on walls as political propaganda in south India. Dravidians, the lower castes, and Muslims have all at times identified themselves with the pre-Aryan indigenous people of India whom the invading Aryans were supposed to have conquered and enslaved. 

Clearly several groups have part of their identify invested in the invasion theory that would be disconcerting to lose. On the other hand, many of the founders of the Indian independence movement like Tilak and Aurobindo wrote against the theory. 

It appeared important to them in restoring Indian identity to reestablish the credibility of ancient Indian civilization and its continuity.  Yet whatever one's social views, history should not be subject to them but should be examined according to the facts.
