Jamadar of Bangladesh

Introduction / History
At one time a Jamadar was an armed military official, much like a general, whose role was to conduct warfare, often against the peasants on a particular estate. Their role was much like a knight in medieval Europe. During the British Raj the term Jemadar referred to a particular military rank, one of an assistant to the British viceroy's commissioned officer. They were in charge of a platoon or the troops. This rank remained in use in India's military until 1965. It was the lowest rank of commissioned officers. The term was changed at that time. They are no longer in India.

Where are they located?
The Jamadar community is very small; it is dying out. They only live in Bangladesh now.

What are their lives like?
The few remaining members of the Jamadar community are either in the Bangladesh military or they have move on to other professions.

What are their beliefs?
All of the Jamadar people are Sunni Muslims in Bangladesh. Hundreds of years ago they were converts from Hinduism, and they retain some Hindu beliefs to this day.

What are their needs?
The Jamadar people need to put their faith in the finished work of Christ rather than in their abilities to follow the laws of the Koran.

Prayer Points
* Pray for many from the Jamadar community to have a spiritual hunger that will drive them to embrace Jesus Christ as lord.
* Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to the Jamadar people.
* Pray for a disciple making movement to flourish among the Jamadars and other military communities of Bangladesh.
