Largest Religion

Main Language


Introduction / History

The following was reported by a Major Wace earlier in the last century: The Karral or Karal were originally Hindus who converted to Islam later. Socially they are like the Hindu religion in some of their ways.

The Karral were under the rule of the Gakkhar from whom they freed themselves which would now be about three hundred years ago.

The Karral cultivate their fields. They claim Rajput origin. They intermarry with the Ghakkar, the Dhunds and the Saiyads.

Prayer Points

* Pray that gospel materials will bring the Karral to Jesus Christ.
* As they have changed religions once, pray that they will change again, this time to Christianity.
