India history and geogprahy

Al Beruni mentions that Buddhism reached up to Syria in the west before the rise of Zoroastrianism. Zoroaster flourished around 1307-1230 BCE and founded Maghism (also known as Zoroastrianism). Persian king Gushtasp of Kayanian dynasty promoted Maghism. Consequently, Buddhism could not survive beyond Afghanistan after 1250 BCE.
