  • The Aryan Invasion Theory and Indian Nationalism

    Sale! 475

    There is one remote period of history, or prehistory, which, in spite of its remoteness, has come to acquire a major propaganda-value for communists and their ilk – the period of the so-called ‘Aryan Invasion of India’. A race of people, called the ‘Aryans’, is supposed to have invaded India somewhere around 2000-1500 BC from the north-west. These Aryans, after centuries of warfare and bloodshed, are supposed to have destroyed, or driven south-wards, or subjugated and absorbed (as lower castes) most of the natives in the north of the ‘subcontinent’, and then themselves occupied the northern areas. Originally formulated by European scholars, mainly for imperialistic reasons, this theory has been perfected by Indian Leftists into a powerful weapon to be used against Indian nationalism.
