Introduction / History

The Pindara live in Madhya Pradesh. The word pindara is related to alcohol. Islam is their religion.

The Pindara speak Urdu and Hindi and read and write in Perso-Arabic and Devanagari. They are endogamous. Divorce and marrying again are allowed. On the death of the father, sons and daughters inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They have birth and marriage rituals and the dead are buried.

Most of the Pindara have land. They work in agriculture. They join with the Hindus with some of the Hindu festivals.


Prayer Points

* Pray that as they read the Koran they are attracted to Jesus Christ, they then read the Bible and give their lives to Him.
