Introduction / History

The Jhinwar are also called Jheewar and live in northern India. Many speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari.

In Haryana, the Jhinwar Sikh live in the Pipali region of Kurukshetra. They speak Haryanvi or Punjabi and read and write in Devanagari or Gurrmukhi. Some of them are vegetarians and some are not. They are endogamous and have adult marriages. They practice monogamy. Widows carry water and do agricultural work. Most of the Jhinwar are now laborers. They have Agurudwara Granthi for leading worship. Basket work is the craft done by them.

In Punjab there are Jhinwar Sikhs. Divorce and widows marrying again is not looked on favorably. They trade in fish and mutton. Many work in industry. They believe in education and use family planning.


Prayer Points

* Pray that Indian Christians will help lead the Jhinwar Sikhs to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel materials will help point them to salvation.
