Early use of something like zero by the Indian scholar Pingala (circa 5th-2nd century BC), implied at first glance by his use of binary numbers, is only the modern binary representation using 0 and 1 applied to Pingala's binary system, which used short and long syllables (the latter equal in length to two short syllables), making it similar to Morse code. Nevertheless, he and other Indian scholars at the time used the Sanskrit word sunya (the origin of the word zero after a series of transliterations and a literal translation) to refer to zero or void.

Well U r right in asking this question mate as it's our country which has given the world the concept of Zero. It was Aryabhatta (circa 3rd cent. B.C.) the great Buddhist philosopher who has come out with his SHUNYAWAD, probing the possibilities of an entity which is in itself is void but when appended with any other can open newer vistas. We Indiands bow to this great philosopher and take pride in our belonging to the same great race.
