"Hinduism didn't originate in India. It is a foreign religion."

The time to pass edicts on alien history and culture from the Ivory Towers of White Men is past, Don. The scholars you cite carried the Bible in one hand, and a gun in another. Myths abounded, and blinded by their mission, they passed verdicts in the name of scholarship in circles that knew nothing about those lands and cultures! There is ample evidence that the Arya civilisation was rooted in India, and its finest product, the Sanskrit Vedas, originated in India, although its influence was pervasive in the pre-Abrahamaic world! This more than 5000 year-old tradition continues unbroken in India alone, in various manifestations, to the remotest tribal village in India. The oldest Vedic poems refer to Indian geological features, its mountains, its famous rivers, and that tradition of veneration continues to this day. Vedic sciences, medicine and arts are practiced in India in an unbroken tradition despite the worst efforts of the Islamofascists and their Missionary counterparts. Sanskrit lives too.

All the silly missionary scholars tried to prove was the racist presumption that this unparallelled knowledge tradition was somehow the work of White men from outside India, although nothing exists elsewhere in proof of the same! Those were the days that 'the Sun did not set upon the British Empire', and alas, they did not understand that their days were numbered.

You can repeat a lie a thousand times in sheer obstinacy, but the Truth will always prevail in the end! Moreover, India is fast becoming the master of its own destiny, and the invaders, alongwith their false jsutifications, are being shown their place! Amen
