The Sirkiband are a scheduled caste. Hinduism is their religion. They have a low literacy level, so the gospel will need to be given in oral form. The name they have is related to making mats. They make mats from grass reeds.
The Sirkiband in Punjab speak Punjabi. They are usually vegetarians. They eat wheat as a cereal. Most of them are landless. They make ropes for a living. Some of them are laborers. They have gotras who supervise marriages.
The Sirkiband in Haryana speak Haryanavi. They make grass thatch from grass. They live in Chandigarh, Himachal Pradesh and Delhi too.
* Scripture Prayers for the Sirkiband (Sikh traditions) in India.
* Pray that Indian Christians lead them to Jesus Christ.
* Pray that gospel recordings lead them to salvation.
