Gujjar (Muslim traditions) in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
The Gurjara clan appeared in northern India in about the fifth century AD. During the Muslim conquest in the Indian subcontinent, many of the Gurjar Hindus converted to Islam. Gujjars are mainly concentrated in the Indo-Gangetic plains, the Himalayan region, and eastern parts of Afghanistan, but some are established in Pakistan. Gujjars have given their names to several places in Pakistan, including Gujranwala, Gujjar Nallah, Gujar Khan, Gojra and Gujrat.

Ministry Obstacles
Centuries of commitment to a religion that denies the deity of Jesus is not quickly overcome.

Outreach Ideas
Much prayer is needed for the Gujjar community. Pray also for workers.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are few if any followers of Jesus among the Gujjar community, but pray for those who will soon be found. Pray the Lord will send them qualified pastors and teachers, and pray that Scripture will be readily available to them.

Pray for the entire people group
Pray that the large Gujjar community in Pakistan, and in other countries, may be strongly drawn to the man Jesus. May the Spirit of Jesus give them a hunger to find out more.
