Arora (Muslim traditions) in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Operation World notes that Aroras are an integral part of India. These are a resilient people, and they managed to become an influential community. Today, many of them are prominent in the areas of business, education, medicine, finance, technology, engineering, manufacturing, entertainment, and the armed forces.

Why do they seem to rise to the top? Most likely it's because of their rigorous work ethic. It could also be because of their insistence on making sure that their children get a higher education.

Where are they located?
Arora Muslims in India are mostly in the states of Punjab, Haryana, and Himachal Pradesh, but a few of them live further north in Jammu & Kashmir. They are more likely to live in Pakistan than India.

What are their lives like?
The Arora community has risen to heights of influence and affluence in India. One of India's recent prime ministers was from the Arora community, though he was a Sikh.

What are their beliefs?
Most Aroras are Hindu, though there are many who are either Sikh or Muslim.

There are no known believers among those from a Muslim background. Unlike most Indian communities, they are flexible enough to go to other people's places of worship.

What are their needs?
The Arora Muslims have no church, and no ministry among them, although increasing numbers if Indian Christian ministries are working in Kashmir. The complete Bible is available in the Urdu language which is the primary language of Arora Muslims.

Prayer Points
* Pray that Islamist extremism may cause Muslims to seek an alternative, and that they will be led by the Holy Spirit to the Savior.
* Pray that prominent Arora from all three religious communities will find Jesus to be the only way to eternal life.
* Pray for a disciple making movement among all Arora religious communities.
