    The beginning of India’s history has been pushed back by more than 2,000 years, making it older than that of Egypt and Babylon. Latest research has put the date of the origin of the Indus Valley Civilisation at 6,000 years before Christ, which contests the current theory that the


    settlements around the Indus began around 3750 BC.
    Ever since the excavations at Harappa and Mohenjo-daro in the early 1920s, the civilisation was considered almost as old as those of Egypt and Mesopotamia.

    The finding was announced at the “International Conference on Harappan Archaeology”, recently organised by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) in Chandigarh.

    Based on their research, BR Mani, ASI joint director general, and KN Dikshit, former ASI joint director general, said in a presentation: “The preliminary results of the data from early sites of the Indo-Pak subcontinent suggest that the Indian civilisation emerged in the 8th millennium BC in the Ghaggar-Hakra and Baluchistan area.”

    “On the basis of radio-metric dates from Bhirrana (Haryana), the cultural remains of the pre-early Harappan horizon go back to 7380 BC to 6201 BC.”
    Excavations had been carried out at two sites in Pakistan and Bhirrana, Kunal, Rakhigarhi and Baror in India.

    there wasn't a country named pakistan at that time,the whole sub-continent was called India by the foreigners.the concept of pakistan has only been created in the early 1940s.before that there was a single entity and it was India/Bharat/Hindustan:rolleyes:

    mate i think you haven't read the real history of the Indian sub-continent!the present area of pakistan was part of all major empire formed in the ancient and in the medieval period!i can name a few like the Mauryas,Kushanas,Guptas,Harshavardhana(to some extent).the entire sub-continent had the same culture at that time.even most of the people of present day pakistan were either buddhist or hindus.haven't you heard of the Gandhara art school which was Greeco-Indian in character.Taxila,the largest University of India at that period was located in the Gandhara region(present day Khyber-Pakhtunkhawa province)where the majority of the students and teachers were either buddhists or hindus.heck our Indian culture spread as far as the Amu-Darya region of Afganistan!so its better to know your history first before making any cr*p comment mate!

    historically there was no Pakistan prior to 1947. The areas were always known as Hind and Sindh. Sindh had huge number of Hindus. Many migrated to India. Those left behind are suffering the brunt of Pakistaniyat.

    Seriously shows what shit you guys are being taught in school.

    The area that includes Pakistan is not known as Indian Sub-continent for nothing. You can always run away from the fact like you normally do.

    Well AIT has been a fliud bag to punch at. AIT .. gradual AIT .. AMT .. gradual AMT and what not.
    So this may or may not discredit AIT technically. But even if we accept an AIT/AMT of 4000 B.C. it kills the huge linguistic careers running on this show and the politics ascendant on it.
    It kills the western supremacist arguments. I think more Indians would be willing to buy a 4000 BC AIT/AMT than the one placed at 1500 BC.
    If the latest find gains momentum in mainstream academics, then indologists and AIT/AMT supporters would have a huge task of resetting all theories at a new date. They would rather discredit it, than risking exposure to such dangerous re-work.
