Planted_map. The Indo-Aryan (also mentioned as the Indo-European) languages are spoken over many countries. this is a fake data to divide the Aryan people. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.88.88.175 (talk) 15:28, 27 June 2015 (UTC)

I believe we should put the numbers of Indo Aryans living in the diaspora (including Romani peoples) into the box showing the number of Indo Aryan people for an accurate number of Indo Aryan Peoples. For example, in U.S.A. 3,183,063 Indians, 110,616 Nepalis, 1,300,000 Pakistanis, 45,159 Sinhalese, 147,300 Bangladeshis and 1,000,000 Romani bringing a total of 5,786,138 Indo Aryans in the U.S. IndoEuropean3000B.C.

All Indians are Ind-Aryans? Get real. Find us some very good sources. Joshua Jonathan (talk) 05:32, 23 May 2014‎ (UTC)
I am sorry, I saw the number of Dravidian peoples living in the U.S. and I subtracted to the 3.1 million figure you see and I got 1.2 million Indians most likely of Indo Aryan origin in the U.S. IndoEuropean3000B.C. (talk) 06:27, 2 July 2014‎ (UTC)

Proof that "Aryans" ever made it to India?[edit]

The concept of the Aryans ever being involved in India is not proven. The Aryan theory is being labeled as a "colonial invasion theory" in the early 1900s. That theory was disputed even then, since there is not a single shred of physical evidence, written or archeological to support that theory. See: Klostermaier, Klaus K., "Hinduism, a Short History", pg 37-40.

Hopefully it can be fixed with current research, and not dubious research that links all of mankind's achievements to one "supposed master" race.Cite error: There are <ref> tags on this page without content in them (see the help page). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:A:3400:D2:C006:3068:A036:5381 (talk) 12:04, 4 July 2014 (UTC)

You're confusing "Indo-Aryan peoples" with Aryan race. Klostermaier is not the best of sources. You should read Anthony, David W. (2007), The Horse The Wheel And Language. How Bronze-Age Riders From the Eurasian Steppes Shaped The Modern World, Princeton University Press , which gives a broad overview on Indo-European migrations.

Images of Indo-Aryans[edit]

Images of some well-known Indo-Aryan people (as an example) should be added to this article. Like it exists for most other ethnic groups (e.g. Iranian peoples or Slavs). — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arvansages (talkcontribs) 15:52, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Pashayi people[edit]

Pashayi people and their language is normally considered Indo-Aryan, including on Wikipedia and academic sources. I added them to the list. I have reverted a user twice who seems to assume they are not Indo-Aryan people when no source corroborates him. Khestwol (talk) 16:40, 27 February 2015 (UTC)

No, you've been reverted for adding unsourced content. No assumptions being made. You need to support what you are adding. --Scalhotrod (Talk) ☮ღ☺ 16:42, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
I am leaving it to other users to decide. As for me it was clear they are Indo-Aryan. FYI: you have violated the 3 revert rule, Scalhotrod. Khestwol (talk) 16:47, 27 February 2015 (UTC)
