AND INDUS RELIGIONS
Moreover Indra and Shiva have
many common traits being the king of the Gods, the destroyer of cities, terrible or fierce in nature, the
dancer, the lord of the Word, possessing a wife named power or
Shakti, etc. There is no real divide between them.
Unfortunately certain Dravidian politicians and certain Shaivite
religious groups have uncritically accepted the Aryan invasion idea
as it gives greater credence to their own traditions. In this regard they
have only fallen into the trap of the invasion theory, which is to turn
various Indic cultural elements against each other, rather than promote their commonality.
