Brief Profile

The Gujarati are a relatively peaceful people, except for religious tensions that exist between the Hindus and Muslims. Known for their resourcefulness and their good business sense, they have successfully emigrated and prospered in many countries around the world.

The Gujarati speak an Indo-Aryan language, which is also called Gujarati. It has many different dialects, some based on region and others based on caste or community.

Most of the Gujarati (88%) are Hindus. The Muslim Gujarati make up (6.6%) of the population.

The Gujarati often have established a successful business presence owning numerous commercial properties and stores. Generations of Gujarati have deep roots and often give the impression that they have assimilated themselves into the Western culture. However, this is often not the case as the majority maintain a distinct Gujarati identity.

Prayer Points

  • Pray for churches to develop intentional church planting strategies specifically focusing on the Gujarati speakers.
  • Pray for Christians that live and work among Gujarati to begin loving friendships with them.
  • Pray against the spiritual principalities and powers that have kept the Gujarati bound for many generations.
