The Arab scholar Said Al-Andalusi who lived in the 11th century was
an admirer of medieval Indian mathematics and civilization.
He stated: "India is the first nation to have cultivated the sciences,
and although black, Allah ranked them above many white and
brown people. It is a powerful, wealthy and populous nation known
for the wisdom of its people and their abilities in all branches
of knowledge."

This question always bewilders me as many hundreds millions of Indians are not only as black as coal but have the same phenotype as the so called African. Yet people, even Indians themselves claim not to be "black" in their mind this is relative to African, what silliness because I myself am African American and many hundreds of these Indians are far darker than me. Just to give you an idea Im about the same complexion as Tyra Banks. If you take a close look at the caste system in India you will see that the very dark ones with African Phenotypes are caste as Dalit or Untouchables, these are the very descendants of those Africans who migrated and cultivated India many millions of years ago. Culturally they are not African but as far as color and physical features wise the vast majority, the ones you dont see on tv and are not lucky enough to come to America are obviously black. If they werent they why the heck is India such a large market for skin lightening cream???
