Sunri Sadhubanik in Bangladesh

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Sunri Sadhubanik people are a scheduled caste. This means that they are an officially designated group of historically disadvantaged people in India, acknowledged by the Indian Constitution. There is no way out of this circumstance. Those in Muslim Bangladesh are only a little better off.

Where are they located?
This people group lives in Bengal and Bihar. A small number live in Bangladesh.

What are their lives like?
They speak, read and write in Bengali.

They are not vegetarians, but they avoid pork and beef, and eat rice as their staple food.

Some Sunri continue with their traditional work of distilling and selling alcohol, though this is frowned upon in Muslim Bangladesh. Others are involved in trade or self-employment. Women help in financial matters. Sunri people are relatively well educated.

What are their beliefs?
Sunri Sadhubanik people are 100 percent Hindu. They worship many gods, family ancestors, and regional gods. They celebrate many Hindu festivals. Brahmin priests perform birth, marriage, and death rituals for them. Religion is an important and invasive part of their lives.

Although written, audio, and visual resources are available in the Bengali language, these people for whom Lord Jesus gave His life remain unreached.

What are their needs?
The greatest need of the Sunri Sadhubanik people is to know that the God who created them is almighty. They need to know that there is no god beside Him. But today there are no known believers among them.

They are poor. They need economic improvement in their lives.

Prayer Points
* Pray for a movement of Sunri households to study the Bible and accept the blessings of Christ.
* Pray for the Sunri people to understand and embrace that Jesus wants to bless their families and neighborhoods.
* Pray for teams of believers to do sustained, focused prayer for the Lord to open the hearts of Sunri family leaders to experience God's blessing through a movement of family-based discovery Bible studies.
* Pray for a movement of Jesus to heal and strengthen Sunri communities.
