India's age old contact with the Muslim world was bound to influence the Indian society and vice versa. The Muslim communities in India are based on Hindu pattern, i.e. occupational classes and communities. In Chattisgarh there are a number of community groups of Muslims. They are named after their trade such as Bhishti community consists of water carriers, meat chopper and sellers are called Kasais, dyers are called Rangrez etc. All these communities are self-sufficient and confined to their narrow shells. This paper is entirely based on archival material as well as the methodology of oral history.
