Introduction / History

Chandal Rajputs are the descendent of the two brave and great brothers, Aalha and Udal who were known for their fierceness and bravery in battle. They dominated other peoples and were the rulers of Mohabba in Madhya Pradesh. The descendants of these Rajputs are very brave and they subdued other peoples. They were so brave and fought so fiercely that in some parts of India people still sing songs about their bravery. They are located mainly in north India, in states like southern Punjab, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Uttrakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Jharkhand, and some parts of Maharashtra and Gujarat.


What Are Their Lives Like?

In India and Nepal Rajputs have a privileged position as forward caste Hindus. Often they do not have wealth. Many are either in the military or they run small businesses.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Chandal Rajputs practice Hinduism, the ancient religion of India. Hinduism is a catch-all phrase for the local religions of South Asia, so it is very diverse. At the popular level, Hindus worship and serve the gods of the Hindu pantheon. They visit Hindu temples and offer prayers, food, flowers, and incense to their gods in hopes of gaining protection and benefits. They do not have a personal or familial relationship with their gods like Christians or Jews. There are other Hindus who are much more philosophical, especially among the Brahmins. Almost all Hindus participate in yearly celebrations like Holi, the festival of colors and the start of spring / Diwali, the festival of lights / Navratri, the celebration of autumn / and Rama Navami, Rama's birthday.


What Are Their Needs?

The Chandal Rajputs people need to submit to Jesus Christ so they can experience the abundant life He offers them in John 10:10.
