The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has issued a notice to the deputy commissioner in Chandigarh to investigate a video of Pastor Baljinder Singh, in which a child has been used to spread propaganda.
Pastor Baljinder Singh is propagating the message that he cured the specially-abled sister of the child. He claims earlier that the specially-abled girl could not speak, but after his magic, she could speak.
Christian missionaries use such videos for conversion activity and propaganda.
“Dear @NCPCR_, @KanoongoPriyank , Kindly investigate this case. Missionary is using a minor boy. He's crying. Pastor Baljinder Singh is involved. The body language of both the pastor and the child seem unusual. Look into this” social media activist Anshul Saxena posted on Twitter with the video of the pastor Baljinder Singh.
The notice was issued by the NCPCR on Sunday (August 29).
In another post, Saxena wrote, “Thanks to @KanoongoPriyank, @NCPCR_ for taking the required action against Pastor Baljinder Singh for using a minor boy for missonary's conversion activity.”
The Indian laws prohibit the use of children in any propaganda video.
