PROF.MAX MULLER says

It can now be proved even by geographical evidence, that Zoroastrians had been settled in India before they immigrated into Persia ………..

That the Zoroastrians and their ancestors started from India during the Vedic period  can be proved as distinctly as that the inhabitants of Massilia started from Greece.

Max Muler said it again in his lectures on the Science of Language …

The Zoroastrians were a colony from northern India . they had been together for a time with the people whose sacred songs have been preserved in the Veda. A schism took place, and the  Zoroastrians migrated westward to Arachosia and Persia .

Kanchi Parmacharya swamikal (1894-1994) also said that Zoroaster is  ‘Saurashtra’ (in Gujarat) and their scripture Zend Avesta is ‘Chandas’ Avesta (Please see my earlier articles on India- Iran connections)

Professors Bhagavat and Apte have in their ‘Key to interpret the Veda’, pointed out that there are references to the Persians and Parthians in the Rigveda  .

RV 1-105-8

sam maa tapanthi abhitah sapatnaariva parsavah

The Parshus ( Persians) harass me all round like cowives

RV 8-6-46

satamaham tirindire sahasram parsava dade radhaamsi yaadvaanaam

I wrested from the Yadva ( tribe)  one hundred cattle (in the province of ) Tirindira and one thousand cattle (in the province of ) Parshu .

RV 7-83-1

yuvaam naraa pasyamaanaasa  aapya praachaa gavyantah  pruthupasavo yayuh

Daasaa cha vrutraa hatamaaryaani  cha sudhaasamindraavarunaavasaavatahm

Oh you men, looking to you and your wealth the Pruthus and Parshus, fain for spoil, march forward. Oh Indra- Varuna, you smote and slew the Dasa and Aryan enemies, and helped Sudas with favour.

Prof.Ludwig also renders  ‘pruthuparsvah’  by Parthians and Persians.

According to PANINI 5-3-117, the words ‘paarsavah’ in the singular ‘parsavau’ in the dual and ‘parsavah’ in the plural, are taken as the name of a warrior tribe, the last of the three suggesting  the singular ‘parsu’

In the cuneiform inscriptions at Behitsan we have the countries Paarsah and Partava  which may be compared to Parsu and Pruthu in the Rigveda.

WHO ARE DASYUS?

As has been shown by Dr Muir in his Sanskrit texts, the word Dasyu is used for men and not demons in the Aitareya Brahmana (7-18) and Manu Smrti (10-43), Mahabharata Shanti Parva (65-2429; 168-6293 and even some passages in the Rigveda (4-41-2, 6-14-3, 10-22-8).

He further says , “I have gone over the names of the Dasyus and Asuras mentioned in the Rigveda, with the view of discovering any of them  could be regarded as of Non-Aryan origin; but I have not observed any that appear of that character.

In the Manu Smrti, we were told (11-43/45) that the Kamboas, Yavanas, Sakas, Paradas,  Pahlavas etc were  Dasyus. The Pahlavas were either Persians or Parthians, as several scholars have asserted. If then the Dasyus dwelt in India in the Vedic and Post Vedic times they probably included Pahlavas.
