Three hundred years ago Janjua Rajputs were ruled by a Sikh Empire. Then they rebelled and gained their independence. After that the Janjua often fought wars against Sikh dominated empires. These wars didn't stop until the 1800s when Pakistan came under British rule. Today the Janjua Rajputs still consider Sikhs to be there enemies, and they have not forgiven them for what happened during these wars. Janjua Rajputs are very powerful in some parts of Pakistan's Punjab Province. Like other Rajput communities, the Janjuas have high status throughout South Asia.
The Janjua in Pakistan are 100 percent Muslim. Those that live in Pakistan have few opportunities to hear of the ways of Christ. The only Christians they know of come from low caste groups that have very little contact with any Rajput community.
Most of these people speak a major language in Pakistan like Punjabi or Urdu, so they have potential access to biblical materials online like gospel recordings and the JESUS Film. Pray for many Janjua Rajputs to find, download, and believe what they hear in these resources.
Pray for the Followers of Christ
There are no known followers of Jesus Christ among the Janjua Rajputs.
Pray for the Entire People Group
Pray the Janjua Rajputs would be at peace with all of their neighbors. May this people group come to see Jesus Christ as the true source of peace. Ask God to lead faithful workers to reach out to this people group with the message of salvation.
