Mussali in Pakistan

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Indigenous Hindus were forcibly converted to Islam and given the derisive name "Mussali." Today they have low status wherever they live in South Asia.

Where are they located?
The Pakistani Mussalis are concentrated in Punjab Province, though they live in the other provinces as well. Those in India are usually in Rajasthan, a state that borders Pakistan. There is a smaller number of them in Afghanistan.

What are their lives like?
The Mussali people are sanitation workers who do the most menial and disgusting jobs in Pakistan. They are looked down upon by other Pakistani communities. They are unhappy with their lot and they want more out of life.

What are their beliefs?
The Mussalis are Muslims who are affected by the caste system. They have low status, and their form of Islam is tainted by Hinduism. All they can do is put their faith in Allah, and hope that he will reward them on the day of judgment.

What are their needs?
The Mussali people need opportunities to get the education they need to rise out of poverty.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Mussali people will have the blessings of spiritual hunger that will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray for the Lord to thrust out workers to this untended field.
* Pray for the Lord to raise up the Mussali communities with both physical and spiritual blessings that will show other communities what He can do for any people who submit to His ways.
