Regarding Mr Tony Joseph's recent article on genetics and the Aryan migration theory, The Hindu has just published this comment of mine:
I had been told that Mr Tony Joseph's would be invited to respond to my comment; his lengthy response reflects not only his lack of familiarity with the field of population genetics (he has clearly gone into it recently and in the hope to find there a "proof" of the old Aryan migration theory), but also considerable distortion of my own statements as well as an ideological bent. I will respond to it in a few days.
Those wishing to see a broader introduction to the contribution of genetics to the Aryan debate may wish to consult my paper published last year on the topic:
PS: Some articles critical of Mr Tony Joseph's have already appeared here and there on the Net, responding to its polemical as well as technical aspects (I am yet to read all of them):
