Ramdasia (Hindu traditions) in India

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
The Chamar are leather workers by tradition. The word Chamar means skin worker. They are a scheduled caste classed as Dalits because of their former work of working with dead animals. Hinduism is their religion mainly, while some of them are Buddhists.

Widows are allowed to marry but within their caste under certain conditions. The Chamar have a council to look after them. They have a leader in the places that they live and in larger places more than one leader. Most of them now work in agriculture and as laborers.

The Ramdasia are a sub group who are Sikhs and have their origins from the Julaha community who are weavers.

Prayer Points
* Pray that the Chamar find that Jesus Christ has no favouritism and give their lives to Him.
* Pray that the council and other leaders come to Jesus Christ and lead others to Him too.
