Having been expelled in 1938 from East Turkestan (Sinkiang), missionaries of the Mission Covenant Church of Sweden came in 1940 to Bombay and Poona in Maharastra. They worked primarily among the Muslim population. In 1948 they started medical and health care work in Sholapur. In 1963 the Hindustani Covenant Church was formed. It regards mission to Muslims as its primary task.
