Kanjar (Muslim traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Kanjar of Maharashtra are not vegetarians and eat rice as a cereal. They speak Rajasthani and Marathi. They are monogamous. Divorce and marrying again are approved by a caste council. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property. There are birth and marriage rituals. The married dead are cremated and the dead who are not married are buried. They sell alcohol and some work in mills. Most of them are Hindus.

In Karnataka, many of the Kanjar work as laborers. They use modern medicine and family planning. Boys are educated to secondary level.

In Uttar Pradesh the Kanjar work in agriculture. They have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form too as in Rajasthan where they speak Mewari and Hindi.

In Bihar again the literacy level is low. They speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. They do hunting and many are self employed. Semi nomads is their way of life here.

The Kanjar are also in Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that gospel recordings will lead them to salvation.
