Aryan Migration Theory update


Hello,

How genetics is settling the Aryan migration debate - The Hindu

Here's an article from The Hindu - newspaper. It's been trending on Twitter. I thought I could share it here.

There he claims AMT is NOT a theory anymore. What are your thoughts/counter-arguments to what he says in the article?

The Hindu religion is essentially Dravidian in nature and has nothing with Central Asian or even European cultures in common. Comparisons with older European religions are not valid at all, they are just junk for the European esoteric scene.

Now Dravida Nadu can be formed without any further delay.
If the brahmins and banias are wrong, then you too are completely wrong. Read what Prashant has written (I would not get into genetics). Dravidnadu! Forget the thought. So many separatist movements have failed, separatist Dravida Nadu attempt too will fail. The Madras Regiment will take care of such people. You do not even have the strength to try it.

Leave aside the chauvinist Hindus, I am a North Indian brahmin of possible Kamboja/Aryan descent. I happily accept that my people came to India after 2,000 BC, merged with the indigenous people and accepted the indigenous Gods and Goddesses like Shiva, Rama, Krishna, Murugan and Durga (Adi Shakti). We do not remember much of Indra or Agni except when we conduct the yajnas. We are not outsiders, we are born and brought up here for generations and have been here for some 3,500 years. I agree that Hindu religion is essentially indigenous and I have no problem with that. If you care, kindly go through my posts in the forums. IE mythologies permeate the whole of Eurasia and India is no exception.

It was already a well established idea that the Indic languages came from outside the Indian subcontinent. This isn't really news.

Nothing. 'Migration theory is discredited' and 'Tamilnadu should boss over Kerala, Andhra. Telangana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Orissa, Gujarat, because they too are Dravidian. Also, Hindus and Hinduism is the root cause of all problems in the world' are the current theories.

There is nothing new in this research, this still unable to answer that so called Aryan race came to India in 1500BC or 1750BC. We already know that Genetic split of Europeans took from the people IE in the East some 20,000 years ago. Besides that, except native Andamanese, all people in India(tribals or non-tribals) have high amount of ANI ancestry.

Aryan invasion is just one of the British colonial propaganda to promote North-South divide by creating fake Indo-Aryan and Dravidian races.

Human race originated in Africa, but so far it has never been established Aryan arrived in 1750BC or 1500BC. Even Max Muller retracted from his 1500BC date 20 years later.

Human Migration is as true as the evolution of humans from some sub-human species.

At one time whether Indo-Aryan or Dravidian or Munda and even Andamanese they migrated to Indian subcontinent.

However, Indian culture is as unique to India as Chinese culture is to China or Greek culture is to Greece.

He looks more like a Kerala communist from his place name who are generally fond of mocking any Hindu belief that's why there is a strong Hindu revivalism even in places like Kerala. Tamilians in general are very strict about their Hindu values and Hindu dietary laws.
