Kashmiri Pandit Brahmins in India are facing extinction. Since 1990, the population of the Kashmiri Pandits has declined considerably. The birth rate among the Pandits is one of the lowest in India, and they have a high mortality rate. The women have complications with their reproductive systems, and many are reaching menopause at the age of 35. Kashmiris are showing premature aging, a decline in mental development, and a lack of desire to live.
Today, many Pandits live in refugee camps because they were forced from their Kashmiri homes by extremist Muslims. Restricted access to them may require prayer and unique open doors.
Kashmiri Pandits are educated people and still maintain their ancient occupations of Hindu priests, scholars, and teachers. Others work as public servants and in law, engineering, computer science, and medicine. Opportunities within these fields may offer opportunities for believers to reach these hurting people.
"Rise up, O Lord, in all your power. With music and singing we celebrate your mighty acts." Psalm 21:13
Pray that this people group will rejoice in the Lord with singing and celebration when they see His mighty acts of mercy and salvation.
Pray that God will raise up many prayer teams to adopt the Pandit people and pray until the blessing of knowing Jesus as Lord spreads rapidly from family to family.
