BBC's take on Hinduism.

The BBC's article on Hinduism is pretty interesting.

Particularly worth reading is what they write about the Aryan invasion theory. Excerpts from this article...
  • There is now ample evidence to show that Muller, and those who followed him, were wrong.
  • Modern historians of the area no longer believe that such invasions had such great influence on Indian history. It's now generally accepted that Indian history shows a continuity of progress from the earliest times to today.
  • The changes brought to India by other cultures are not denied by modern historians, but they are no longer thought to be a major ingredient in the development of Hinduism.
Well, looks like the civilised world is waking up to the truth of the situation.

Of course, certain experts would like us to believe otherwise.
