The Panar live in Gujarat in India. The word Panar means weaver. They speak Gujarati and some can speak Urdu also. Some speak Hindi.


Where Are they Located?

Many of them live in Ahmedabad and some in Surat in Gujarat.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The Panar are endogamous (they prefer to marry within the group) and they prefer marriage between cousins. They are weavers by tradition and some work in that occupation now. They have been involved in cotton thread making and tend to be landless. Many of them work as laborers and their traditional work is lessening.

The Panar have a caste association that settles disputes and looks after them.

Prayer Points

* Pray that the leaders of the caste associations will come to Jesus Christ and lead others to salvation too.
* Pray that they will read about Jesus in the Koran and this will help them to seek more and come to salvation also
