Introduction / History

Many of the Juneta people are still involved in the political arena. Most, however, are involved in agriculture-related industries. They are also known as Juneja and Junejo.


Where Are they Located?

Mostly a Sindhi Rajput people, the Juneta people live in India’s western states of Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Punjab, though most live in Pakistan’s adjacent Sindh Province.


What Are Their Lives Like?

The air is tight with tension among the small Juneta people group. They don’t feel safe in their homes. They live close to the border with Pakistan where threats and tensions are never far away between these two hostile nations. Ironically, a small number of these Muslims moved to Hindu India from Pakistan during the bloody 1947 Partition.

Twenty years ago, a member of their community, Mohammad Khan Junejo, was Prime Minister of Pakistan. He called on India to enter into immediate negotiations to defuse tensions rising from the massing of troops on their mutual border. War was averted between the two nuclear-armed nations.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Juneta people are Muslim, but their form of Islam is affected by Hinduism, the religion of most people in India. They believe in the basic creeds of Islam, but their daily lives are affected by spiritual entities other than Allah.


What Are Their Needs?

Though they face physical danger by living near a border between two hostile nations, the Juneta people face a far greater spiritual danger by not embracing the Son of God who is the only one who can forgive sin.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Juneta in India.

* Pray that many of their people will encounter the Holy Spirit and diffuse the tensions between their community and Jesus Christ.
* Pray that God will raise up members of the Juneta people who will bring about physical and spiritual peace.
* Pray that soon they will have a disciple-making movement that will bless their communities in India and Pakistan.
