The Kaghzi or Kagzi are Muslims who live in India. Kagzi means paper manufacturing in Urdu. With having paper mills now, the tradition of paper making has lessened in recent years.
Many of the Kaghzi live in the Shahpur region of Ahmedabad in Gujarat. In Gujarat many are self-employed in businesses and others are farmers.
The Kaghzi in Maharashtra have different customs to those in Gujarat. They speak a Dakhani dialect of Urdu. Many are self-employed or in other work. They are having success. They are Sunni Muslims.
Both the Kaghzi in Maharashtra and in Gujarat have caste associations that settle disputes and look after their communities.
* Pray that as the Kaghzi read about Jesus Christ in the Koran that they will want to know what the Bible says and that this will lead them to give their lives to Him.
* Pray that the leaders of the caste associations will come to Jesus Christ and lead the Kaghzi community to Him.
