There is no consensus about which language or languages the Harappan (Indus Valley Civilization) people spoke.
The script is considered by most to be logo-syllabic, not heiroglyphic.
Farmer, Witzel, Sproat consider it to be a sign system rather than a script associated with any particular language.

Subject: [INDOLOGY] INDUS CIVILISATION.
While going through some books on Indus valley civilisation , I failed to find out one
answer. Though the Harappana & Mohenjo daro script has been inferred as more of a Hieroglyphic
type, what dialect/language did they speak ?
Would love to be enlightened on this point.
