THE ARYAN INVASION THEORY
The few scholars today who continue to hold an outside origin for the Aryans have also generally given up the invasion/destruction idea, though they may still be proposing an outside origin for the Aryans. They are proposing an Aryan migration, diffusion, or mixing with indigenous people which is quite different from the violent and intrusive form of the original Aryan invasion idea (note Romila Thapar in this regard *4). 

Some of these scholars accept an Aryan element in the Harappan culture itself, owing to Vedic traits like fire altars which have been found in Harappan sites, though they still may not regard the Harappan culture as a whole as Aryan.
