Gujjar (Muslim traditions) in Pakistan

The Gurjara clan appeared in northern India in about the fifth century AD. During the Muslim conquest in the Indian subcontinent, many of the Gurjar Hindus converted to Islam. Gujjars are mainly concentrated in the Indo-Gangetic plains, the Himalayan region, and eastern parts of Afghanistan, but some are established in Pakistan. Gujjars have given their names to several places in Pakistan, including Gujranwala, Gujjar Nallah, Gujar Khan, Gojra and Gujrat.

Ministry Obstacles

Centuries of commitment to a religion that denies the deity of Jesus is not quickly overcome.

Outreach Ideas

Much prayer is needed for the Gujjar community. Pray also for workers.

Scripture Focus

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."  Jeremiah 1:5

Scripture Prayer

Pray for the Lord to thrust out many prophets from every nation to every nation in the 2020s.

Prayer Focus

There are few if any followers of Jesus among the Gujjar community, but pray for those who will soon be found. Pray the Lord will send them qualified pastors and teachers, and pray that Scripture will be readily available to them. Pray that the large Gujjar community in Pakistan, and in other countries, may be strongly drawn to the man Jesus. May the Spirit of Jesus give them a hunger to find out more.
