Pasi (Muslim traditions) of Bangladesh

Introduction / History
Traditionally the Pasi people took toddy (wine) from palm trees. Though we don't know how they became Muslim, some turned to Islam as a "people movement," which offers hope that they can turn to Christ as well.

Where are they located?
Though most live in India's state of Bihar, some live in Bangladesh.

What are their lives like?
There are some Pasi people who still extract liquor from palm trees. Others have moved on to other professions.

What are their beliefs?
Most Pasis are Hindus, but there are some Muslims among them, especially in Muslim Bangladesh. South Asian Muslims generally have their spirituality tainted by Hinduism, so they depend on the goodwill of saints to intercede for them. They often depend on charms, amulets, and other paraphernalia rather than the power of Allah. Those who are devout, however, will pray five times a day, and even go on the required pilgrimage to Mecca if possible.

What are their needs?
Like all other unreached people groups, the Muslim Pasi community needs the chance to find their way to the Savior, who gives life to the full. That means they need His spiritual guidance, which often comes from those who dare to go with the gospel.

Prayer Points
* Pray for families of Pasi believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches.
* Pray for a chain reaction of families reaching families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.
* Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Pasi society as all believers learn to love others.
* Pray that churches and believers will bless their entire people group in such a way that God's love will change the Pasi people like yeast changes dough.
