# Why Pythagorean theorem is not credited to Vedic mathematics?

Look at the page from a manuscript of Lilavati showing the Pythagorean Theorem

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shulba_Sutr…

The Vedic people entered India about 1500 BC from Elam, today is Iran (Not LTTE demanded Elam in Sri Lanka/Taprobane).

Even Chinese astronomical and mathematical treatise called Chou Pei Suan Ching (The Arithmetical Classic of the Gnomon and the Circular Paths of Heaven, ca. 500-200 B.C.), possibly predating Pythagoras, gives a statement of and geometrical demonstration of the Pythagorean theorem.

It has also been suggested that the ancient Mayas used variations of Pythagorean triples in their Long Count calendar.

Should we consider Pythagorean theorem credited to Pythagoras as plagiarism?

Why western education system deliberately continue to teach a false history of Mathematics, even after evidence are obvious?
