ruled India, as they did other lands, by a divide and conquer strategy. They promoted
religious, ethnic and cultural divisions among their colonies to keep them under control.
Unfortunately these policies entered into the intellectual and religious realms. The same
simplistic ideas that were used for political domination were applied for interpreting the
culture and history of India, as dividing a culture intellectually is the key to
controlling it in the political realm.
many Hindus have come to believe these foreign ideas, even though a deeper examination
reveals they have no real objective or scientific basis.
One of the most important of these European-invented ideas is that India is a land of two
races the lighter-skinned Aryans and the darker-skinned Dravidians and that the Dravidians
were the original inhabitants of India whom the invading Aryans conquered and dominated.
