Scythic Origin of the Rajput Race
Mulchand Chauhan

The 'Scythic Origin of the Rajput Race' proves once and for all that the modern-day Rajputs, Jats, Thakurs, Gujjars and Gujaratis are not Vedic Aryans but instead the descendants of Scythic immigrants. The Brahmins, Vedic vidyalayas and Hindutva universities generally dogmatically insist that the Rajputs are "Vedic Aryan Kshatriyas". These theories are based on the Puranas and are thus more than a thousand years old. Since the early 1800's a small group of dedicated Indologists have held that these Puranic theories were wrong, and that instead of being Vedic Aryans, these Rajputs were descended from Sakas and related peoples who immigrated into India in the centuries around the birth of Christ. These Indologists were ignored or condemned, and are often called `anti-Brahmin' or `anti-Hindu'. At best, the Hindutvadins claim that only a small number of Sakas entered India, and that the bulk of the genetic contribution to the modern Rajput has come from the Aryan, with the subsequent Scythics being "submerged in the sea of Aryan genes".

Now, after many years of research, a well-known Rajput author, Mulchand Chauhan, has published a ground-breaking book entitled ` The Scythic Origin of the Rajput Race' in which he proves the true racial origin of the Rajput race. It cannot be stressed how absolutely essential it is for all to consider the startling evidence that today's Rajputs are not Aryans. Moreover, he has kept the book short and readable, rather than dwelling at length on the cumulative evidence. His book demolishes once and for all the myth that the Rajputs are Vedic Kshatriyas, and destroys the very basis of the Brahminist-Aryan theory that all `Hindus' are Vedic Aryans. Directly from this follows another two-nation theory: namely, that the Sakas have lived in their own Sakasthan, historically centered on the Rajputana-Gujarat region, culturally, racially and linguistically distinct from the Aryan-Vaishnava regions centered on Maharashtra.
