Khumra (Muslim traditions) in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Khumra live in India in the Rohikhand region in the state of Uttar Pradesh where they have been given the status of Other Backward Classes which means they are socially and educationally disadvantaged. So the gospel will need to be given in oral form too. They are Sunni Muslims and speak Urdu and Hindi.

The Khumra are traditionally involved with millstone manufacturing but now that has declined and many work as agricultural and industrial laborers. Only a few of them are landowners.

The Khumra are endogamous (meaning they prefer marriage between members of their group rather than marrying outside the group) and they intermarry. They believe in equality. They have Caste Councils that deal with disputes.

A few of the Khumra live in Haryana and work as weavers but most of the Haryana Khumra now live in Pakistan.

Prayer Points
* Pray that God will give the Khumra dreams and visions leading them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that as they read about Jesus in the Koran they will be encouraged to read the Bible and come to salvation too.
