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.
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
