Nikari (Muslim traditions) of India

Introduction / History
The Nikari live in West Bengal. The name they have is related to doing good. They speak, read and write in Bengali. They are not vegetarians and eat wheat and rice as cereals.

The Nikari are endogamous, that is, they prefer to marry only within their community. The divorced and bereaved can marry again. On the death of the father, daughters get less of the property than the sons with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals. The dead are buried.

The Nikar work selling fish and growing fruit. Islam is their religion. They have a community council to help them. Girls are educated but boys more so. They use modern medicines.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the council leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him.
* Pray that God will give them dreams and visions leading them to salvation.
* Pray that as they read the Koran, they will want to read the Bible about Jesus Christ and will give their lives to Him.
