The Makrani are Muslims who live in Gujarat in India. They are descendants from the Baluchs who were brought to Gujarat as mercenaries. Many live in Kathiawar. They speak Gujarati and some can speak Urdu.
They have several clans such as Askani and Baluch. The Makrani are all classed the same as each other. Many of them are in the police and some work as farmers.
The Makrani have a caste association called the Makrani Jamat that helps the community and works hard here.
* Pray that the leaders of the caste association will come to Jesus Christ and lead others of the Makrani to Him too.
* Pray that as they read the Koran this will lead them to want know more about Jesus Christ and give their lives to Him.
