Pakistan Hindko

30-Days of Prayer for the Muslim World
Ramadan 2008 / 1429: September 01 - September 30

Pakistan - The Hindko speakers: one language, many tribes

For Friday 26 September, Ramadan 2008. "Loving Muslims Through Prayer"

Possibly five million people in northern Pakistan are Hindko speakers. Made up of several ethnic groups, mostly Pathans and Moghuls, the Hindko are more of a language group than a people group.

Hindko speakers make their living as farmers or merchants in the foothills of the Himalayas. Corn and wheat are the most important crops. These grains are ground into flour and used to make a flat bread that accompanies every meal. The people lead very simple lives, but often go to great lengths to secure an education and a better future for their children. Only about 25% of Hindko speakers can read in any language.

Prayer Starters:
  • Pray that Hindko believers would overcome their fear of persecution.
    Pray for additional believers willing to lovingly serve Hindko speakers through practical means.
  • Pray that God would reveal Himself through various means including dreams and visions among Hindko speakers.
  • Pray that Hindko speakers would have access to God's Word in their own language through print, audio recordings, radio and the internet..
