New Delhi: The Baptist Union of North India has reacted strongly to a CNN-IBN and Cobra Post's expose that found some unscrupulous members of the church selling baptism certificates.
President of the Baptist Union North India, Reverand Walter David has said that the erring authorities are going to be removed from their posts.
"These people will be removed from the position of the pastor. We are going to suspend both Kirpal Masih and Pastor Henrich James," he said.
Baptism certificates are needed to prove that a person is a Christian.
Paharganj's Idgaah Baptist Church pastor, Father Benjamin Das and Father Henrich James, of the Holy Gospel Baptist church in Delhi University's Christian colony sell baptism certificates for anywhere between Rs 5,000 and Rs 15,000.
Not just them, but many other priests from the Baptist Union of India and the Evangelical Church of India in Delhi also sell fake baptism certificates in lieu of money.
