Introduction / History

Traditionally the Pasi Turuk people were Hindus who tapped palm trees to make toddy, an alcoholic beverage. Some of them converted to Islam at some point, but there are no records regarding the circumstances.


Where Are they Located?

This Muslim community lives in West Bengal and Bihar, two states in eastern India.


What Are Their Lives Like?

Muslims would not allow their people to produce alcoholic beverages which are forbidden in Islam. The Pasi Turuk people now work as farm laborers, raising livestock.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Pasi Turuk people are Muslims, but by living in South Asia, their form of Islam has been tainted by Hinduism. Officially they adhere to the main tenants of Islam, but pre-Islamic beliefs control their lives on a daily basis.


What Are Their Needs?

The Pasi Turuk people need opportunities to receive the training they need to rise above poverty.


Prayer Points

* Scripture Prayers for the Pasi Turuk in India.

* Pray for families of Pasi Turuk believers loving and serving others to start a reproducing church planting movement in West Bengal.
* Pray for a chain reaction of families reaching Pasi Turuk families that results in thousands of new believers who share their faith with others.
* Pray for grace and truth expanding into the entire Pasi Turuk society as all believers learn to love others.
* Pray that churches and believers will bless their entire people group in such a way that God’s love will change the Pasi Turuk people like yeast changes dough.
