Question: Do you have any idea on what is the basis/evidence that the scholars found to arrive at that belief?

Answer: It has to do with where the descendants of the sons of Noah settled. The descendants of Japheth settle north of Israel (Europe, Russia). The descendants of Shem settled east of Israel (Iraq, Persia). And the descendants of Ham settled south of Israel (Africa). You may find the article Wikipedia has on this topic helpful.
