Rightwing Hindus don't want anybody to believe in the Aryan invasion theory because they'd like to claim that all other "religious"faiths and except theirs were introduced or imposed by invaders of the Indians Therefore they are propogating the myth of Aryans as the original inhabitants of the subcontinent even though excavations at the site of the Indus valley civilizition (Harappa and Mohan Jo Daro in present day Pakistan) has revealed the existence of a non Vedic civilization. DNA tests on some isolated tribes like the Drokpas in the foothills of the Himalayas have proved beyond doubt that they are indeed Aryans. Sanskrit is rightly classified as an Indo Aryan language.
