Mewati (Muslim traditions) in India

Mewati, also known as "Meo" people were of the Hindu Rajput caste in earlier times. They are Muslims but have their roots in Hinduism. They probably turned to Islam in the 1600s and more became Muslims at about the beginning of the 1900s. For a long time the Mewati have been livestock farmers. They are well known in India. Some have trucking businesses. Others work for the government, army, or police, electricians, plumbers, money lenders, or laborers.

Ministry Obstacles
Mewati are considered a Muslim people, and the Islamic religious authorities usually strongly oppose the spread the gospel into their communities.

Outreach Ideas

Pray for the followers of Christ
Pray that the few who dare to allow Christ the right place in their lives will have the boldness and love to share their Lord with others.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray that Mewati people will see that their only hope is in Jesus Christ. * Pray that intercessors worldwide will regularly pray for salvation of Mewati people. * Pray that many Mewati people who are reached will disciple others until this people group knows that Jesus Christ is Lord.
