Introduction / History

The Murao live in Uttar Pradesh. They speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari and are vegetarians.

The Murao can divorce if the elders allow it. Marrying again is permitted. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property. There are birth, marriage and death rituals. The dead are cremated.

The Murao work mainly in agriculture while some work for the government and others as laborers. Hinduism is their religion and they have Hindu festivals and ceremonies too.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials will lead them to salvation.
