Because of this evidence some
scholars have given up the idea that the Vedic people destroyed the
Harappan culture and proposed that the Vedic people came after the
decline of the culture and merely took over the remnants of it. In this
it was the abandoned Harappan cities that the Aryans came to, but
this view still usually portrayed the advent of the Aryans as violent.
This post-Harappan violent invasion I would call "the third birth of the
Aryan invasion theory," though it is unclear what they destroyed. It
shows the theory already in question.
Other scholars proposed that the Aryans came into the Indus
civilization itself during its later period and that Harappan culture
was a composite of Aryan and non-Aryan elements, though there
is nothing particularly composite about Harappan culture. Most
scholars of such views would still like to portray the Aryan advent as
violent though no proof for that has ever been found. Meanwhile no evidence of such migrations during
the Harappan period has been found either.
