It’s a rare thing when a new country is born. Rarer still does one ethnic group get credit for the country’s existence. Pakistan was born in 1947, and the Memons forged its survival.
The Memons are business people-traders, shippers, importers and exporters. For centuries they thrived economically while other Muslim groups struggled. As Pakistan grew in stability, the Memons expanded their trades. Several built international empires.
But turmoil in Pakistan has caused the Memons to feel unwanted. Yusuf Haroon, a leading Memon said, “Memons are finished in Pakistan.” Still, in spite of repeated political maneuvers to destroy their power, the Memons rise like a phoenix. But many have shifted their centers of activity to other countries. For example, they are prominent in India, especially the city of Mumbai.
The Memon people are 100% Islam and in dire need of hearing the Gospel message. Please pray for opportunities to open their hearts and minds by sharing the love of Jesus with them.
