THE ARYAN INVASION OF INDIA
QUESTIONED IN THE WESTERN TEXTBOOKS
caused Klostermaier to question the whole Western reading of the Vedas, "We can be
certain that these first efforts to get away from a historicist-humanistic Western reading
of the Vedas will be followed by more detailed analyses and probably quite startling
discovers about the character and content of Vedic civilization. (pg. 38)"
The same arguments have been raised in India by many writers, archaeologists, scientists
and spiritual leaders, but still have not yet entered into the textbooks. Now the question
arises, if textbooks in the West can be changed in regard to the Aryan Invasion Theory,
why cannot textbooks in India be changed, particularly as the theory has frequently been
used to discredit the culture of India and the Hindu religion?
