The Mysterious Aryan Invasion
(Fact or Fairytale)

By: Muhammad Zulfiqar Sahito
(Inspired by the book "Telling the true story of history")
History being taught in Asian schools is factually wrong and ignores the evidence from the fields of archaeology, geology, genetics, and archaeo-astronomy. It is also contrary to ancient Indian literary evidence (which claims the world famous Vedic acharya), David Frawley (Vamadeva Shastri), Director, American Institute of Vedic Studies. During the course of a rather lengthy visit to India earlier in the year, Frawley stressed the need to thoroughly revamp Indian history by incorporating recent discoveries within a multi-disciplinary framework that incorporates all relevant data in a consistent fashion.
In a paper co-authored with N. Rajaram, Frawley points to recent articles in the British Journal Current Biology, that have major implicatsions for India. Based on genetic tests, the articles note that a key mitochondria DNA of the Western Eurasian strain accounts for no more than 5.2% in Indian populations, as against over 70% in European countries like Germany. Simply put, this means that the supposed Aryan invasion is contradicted by genetics. This means that there was no 'Aryan invasion,' not even any significant 'Aryan migration.'
What is more, the study shows that these West Eurasian strains are present in roughly the same proportion in North and South India. This means that there is no genetic divide between the so-called Dravidians and the Aryans in India. Hence, according to the latest scientific evidence accompanied by the revolutionizing evidences of genetics, both the Aryan invasion and the Aryan-Dravidian dichotomy have no basis.
Other evidence also draws our attention to the points of the same conclusion. Archaeological discoveries over the past fifty years have repeatedly shown the Aryan invasion theory found in Indian history books to be false. For instance, the course of the ancient Saraswati River, discovered by the late V.S. Wakankar and his associates, matches the geography of North India as depicted in the Rig Veda's descriptions of the ocean-going Saraswati before the river dried up around circa 2000 BC. The Geological Society of India has proved this point from various perspectives. That is why most Harappan sites are located not on the Indus but on the banks of the Saraswati, as it was their central region.
