Introduction / History

The Burmese who live in India are a mixture of Indian descendants of Burmese people, Burmese refugees and immigrants. Most of the refugees are from the Chin people who are a minority group in Burma or Myanmar as it is also called. Some are from other groups such as the Rakhine.

Many Burmese came to India because of the troubles in Burma and India is a neighboring country. Chin refugees have been in India for about forty years. They help new refugees to adjust to their new circumstances.

The Burmese refugees live mainly in Mizoram but elsewhere too such as the capital New Delhi. Many Burmese are arriving in New Delhi every month. There is no legal protection for Burmese refugees in India. Though the Indo-Burmans speak Hindi and English as well as Burmese, some of the Chin have difficulty learning Hindi and English and this has caused them problems with the Indians here.

The Burmese in India have different religions. Some are Buddhists and others are Hindus. There are some of them who follow Christianity and there are Muslims among them too.


Prayer Points

* Pray that the problems the Burmese have had in their own country and in India will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that Burmese Christians will lead the others among them to Salvation also.
