OF THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY
The Aryan invasion theory requires
a west-to-east movement of populations from Central Asia into
India, evidence for which in ancient India does not exist. The relocation
of populations within India that Schaffer speaks of is from the
Sarasvati region, when it dried up, to the Ganges, in which the
continuity of culture was preserved. This agrees with the Hindu literary
record which places the Vedic civilization on the Sarasvati, shifting
to the Puranic civilization on the Ganges. The only real west-to-east
movement in ancient India was of the Harappan (Sarasvati) peoples
themselves, not of any outside invaders.
Let us continue and examine the details of the invasion theory and
how they have been invalidated.
