THE ARYAN INVASION OF INDIA
QUESTIONED IN THE WESTERN TEXTBOOKS
the Harappan cities were found to have been abandoned by climate and river changes, not
destroyed by outside invaders, and the horse, thought to have been first brought by the
invading Aryans has been now been found to have existed already in many Harappan sites.
Contrary to the theory, the picture has emerged of an indigenous and organic development
of civilization in ancient India going back to 6500 BC (the Mehrgarh site in Pakistan)
with no break in continuity and no significant outside invasions or migrations. Indeed it
appears that in the coming years the Aryan invasion theory will soon be discarded all over
Recently the monthly newspaper Hinduism Today (Dec. 1994) has come out against the Aryan
Invasion Theory in its Time Line edition. Hinduism Today is largest circulating Hindu
monthly in the world Hinduism Today is published in the United States, though distributed
world wide, including in India.
