 Unreached of the Day: Vaghri, Hindu of Pakistan


Vaghri, Hindu of Pakistan
The Vagri (a Scheduled Caste in India) are said to have derived their name from the Sanskrit wagura, meaning a net; and Vagri are said to have gotten this name because many Vagri were professional hunters. Vagris are further divided into five main sub-castes. During the Colonial period, Vagri were listed under the Criminal Tribes Act, 1871, as being a tribe "addicted to the systematic commission of non-bailable offences." They suffered greatly as a result of this decision, and are still suffering the consequences. In Pakistan, they are landless and have been subject to discrimination at the hands of the locally powerful Sodha Rajput community. Like those in India, the Pakistan Vagri are Hindu.

Ministry Obstacles
Lack of workers is an obstacle to the advance of the Gospel in all nations of the world, but especially so in South Asia.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray the Vaghri will discover the availability of the Jesus film, Gospel recordings and scripture on the Internet. Pray that many, many people will download or listen to these materials and that the Lord will give them understanding.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no Christians among the Vaghri, according to the census of Pakistan and India. There may be a few secret believers, and they need prayer.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray for improved employment opportunities for the Vaghri community, and for rapidly rising literacy rates, especially among the youth.

Scripture Focus
"He will have compassion on the poor and needy, And the lives of the needy He will save." Psalm 72:13
