Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Many of the Muslim Rangrez have gone to live in Pakistan. In India they live in the northern part of the country. The word Rangrez means dyer in Persian. They dye clothes by tradition.

The Muslim Rangrez speak Urdu and Hindi. The word Rangrez has now been replaced by the word Sabbagh which means garden. They are Sunni Muslims and have Caste Associations to look after them. The status of Other Backward Caste has been given them in north India.

In Uttarh Pradesh, the Muslim Rangrez are landless. Many are rickshaw pullers and laundrymen. They like cousin marriages.

In Rajasthan, they have clan exogamy unlike other Rangrez. They live in multi caste and multi religious villages.

In Bihar many of them are cultivators or businessmen. Some Muslim Rangrez live in Gujarat too.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the leaders of the Caste Associations will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Rangrez to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
