Introduction / History

According to their own legends, the Bawaria people were once part of the powerful Hindu Rajput caste. During a fight between the Mughals and the Rajputs, a Bawaria individual foolishly polluted something with cow's blood, which prevented the Rajputs from bringing their soldiers back from dead. When the Rajputs were defeated, the Bawarias were exiled to the jungle to spend their days eking out an existence by hunting and gathering. Worse yet, they were now outcastes, a huge step down from their former status. They still consider themselves to be Rajputs, but other communities would not agree, though they have higher status than most outcastes.

Most of them live in the Indian states of Rajasthan, Punjab, and Delhi.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They were known to use a noose for hunting, so their name is derived from a word for noose. Some of them still make ropes, but they are much more likely to be farmers.


What Are Their Beliefs?

Most are Hindus, though there are a smaller number Muslims and Sikhs among them. We know of no followers of Christ among this community that believes in the power of evil spirits, charms, amulets, and magic.


What Are Their Needs?

Like people everywhere, the Bawaria people need to allow the loving Savior to direct their lives. They need his forgiveness for sin.


Prayer Points

Pray for the Lord to draw the Bawaria people into his kingdom through the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit.

Pray for them to seek and find the unlimited blessings of a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Pray for loving workers to go to the Bawaria people until there are disciples who make more disciples
