Introduction / History

The Kunjra of India are one of several unengaged people groups in the east Indian state of Bihar, a state with 15 million Muslims and no one working long-term to reach them. Bihari Muslims are the second largest unengaged people cluster in the world.


Where are they Located?

Located between West Bengal and Uttar Pradesh, Bihar is one of the poorest and least developed states in all of India and one of the most spiritually dark places on earth. Destitute and extreme poverty, overt idolatry, and sometimes overwhelming spiritual warfare characterize the state and make long-term work very difficult. Though it is the 12th largest state in India in terms of geographical size, Bihar is extremely populous and ranks as the 3rd most populated state in the nation, with 95 million people.


What are Their Lives Like?

Belonging to one of the backward, or lower castes, their hereditary societal status is defined by their occupation as vegetable sellers.


What are Their Beliefs?

Hinduism is the majority religion in Bihar; however, Muslims comprise a significant portion of the state's population and are a large minority. Of the Muslim people groups in Bihar, the Kunjra are among the largest.


What are Their Needs?

In 2008 a dam broke in Nepal, which borders Bihar to the north, and caused catastrophic flooding in Bihar. Frontiers workers who traveled to the area determined that although clean water and sanitation are desperate needs for the people of Bihar, teams who go with this work as their identity will not find it easy to get in. Instead, teams who go with business skills and the ability to create jobs will be much better received.
