Anything should be discussed. Mr Prashant cannot tell others what should and should not be discussed on this forum. He seems to be defender of the Aryan invasion myth since he surreptitiously inserts the idea of Aryans destroying the Dravidian culture 4000 years ago when both genetics and archaeology have demolished it. It is now the last resort of sectarian political groups like Karunanidhi's DMK and formerly of the LTTE. So Mr Prashant should not ask us to ignore it when it is still politically potent. It has lessons to offer in the study of other political groups with similarly sectarian agendas, including in Palestine.
