Patni (Hindu traditions) in Bangladesh

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The word Patni has to do with ferrying by boat. They are a scheduled caste, which means they have low status in Hindu society.

Where are they located?
They live in India and Bangladesh.

What are their lives like?
Those in Bangladesh and parts of India speak Bengali. They are not vegetarians. Most are landowners who work in cultivation, though others are day laborers. They have a low literacy level and so the gospel message will need to be presented in oral form. They avoid marrying relatives on the side of the father for five generations.

What are their beliefs?
There are both Muslim and Hindu Patni people. Hindus don't have a set of theological beliefs like Christians or Muslims, nor do they have a specific set of gods they must worship. People worship the gods they believe will benefit them. Hindus like the Patni, who have low status, hope to be reincarnated into a higher caste after they die.

What are their needs?
The Patni people, be they Hindu or Muslim, need to meet their Savior.

Prayer Points
* Pray for families of believers loving and serving others to grow reproducing churches.
* Pray for a chain reaction of Patni families reaching families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.
* Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Hindu Patni society as all believers learn to love others.
* Pray that churches and believers will bless their entire people group in such a way that God's love will change the Hindu Patni people like yeast changes dough.
