Introduction / History

The Habura community lives mainly in urban centers of Uttar Pradesh. They claim that they were once Rajputs, but after rebelling against a Muslim leader who tried to convert these Hindus by force, they were defeated, and they had to live off what they could find in the jungles. From there they began a life of armed robbery and burglary. Some of them have continued being thieves, but others are farmers or farm workers.


What are Their Beliefs?

The Habura people are Hindus, an dKala Dev is their clan deity. They worship him before committing a burglary.


Prayer Points

* Pray for the Habura people to have a strong hunger and thirst for righteousness that will lead them to Christ.
* Pray that they will have ready access to Christian materials in their language, Hindi.
