Introduction / History

"For sheer tenacity and persistence, nobody can beat the Kambojs," stated M.S. Randhawa, the former Vice Chancellor of Punjab University. Writers have often admired the Kamboj people for their talents as agriculturalists and soldiers. (1)
Centuries ago, the Kamboj people migrated east from what is now Iran into the Indian subcontinent. As time went on, many of them became government officials, though many settled down as farmers. Many who lived in western India adopted Hinduism. Over the years many Kamboj people converted to other religions. They lived in places like Kashmir and Punjab, where Hindu and Muslim armies fought bitterly. Some adopted one of these two religions, but many became Sikhs. There are even a small number of Buddhists and Jains among the Kamboj, but no followers of Jesus Christ.

What Are Their Beliefs?

You can say that they are one of India's most religiously diverse people groups, as well as one of her most competent. Yet as a people, they have not found it in their hearts to submit to the One who yearns to have them become part of His Kingdom. They have remained part of several religions, but few if any have given Jesus a chance to change their lives.

Prayer Points

Pray that these religiously diverse people will turn their backs on religion and embrace the One who wants them for His own. Pray that the Kamboj people will soon bow their knees to Jesus Christ as lord of their lives.
