Mohanjodaro (Moyan-jo-dero, I always want to put it like that, Mohanjodaro linguistically does not make any sense), was a trading town like Lothal. Trade in the East dwindled for some reason and that in West increased, Rakhigarhi, Kalibangan, etc. That I think is the reason for decline of Moyan-jo-dero, added perhaps by a pestilence (the 40 skeletons), and the city never recovered. Not any violence, IMHO.
