Dhund in Pakistan

The Dhund Abbasi people are said to have come to ancient Pakistan from Egypt around 850 AD, as traders and merchants in commodities. It is likely that they are descended from the Abbasid dynasty. This dynasty governed for 500 years from Baghdad, Iraq. The rule of the Abbasi extended eastwards across Afghanistan into the South Asian subcontinent, covering the eastern part of modern-day Pakistan. A conflicting acccount is that the Dhund Abbasi are descendants of Abbas, an uncle of the prophet Mohammad, but this may have little credibility.

Ministry Obstacles

Northern Pakistan, where the Dhund people reside, is especially resistant to the claims of Christ. Spiritual opposition is strong, not to mention the opposition from men.

Outreach Ideas

There are brave Pakistani Christians. Pray for their protection and for opportunities to take the Gospel to people groups such as the Dhund.

Pray for the followers of Christ

It is unlikely there is even a single follower of Christ among the Dhund of Pakistan and India. If there are secret believers we need to be in prayer for them.

Pray for the entire people group

Please pray the Lord will reveal himself to the Dhund people in powerful ways. There is so much spiritual darkness in Pakistan to penetrate with the light of the Gospel.
