That's amazing. Isn't it?
This article talks about the union of modernity with religion. In the past, who would have given it a thought that it is necessary to certify purity with a certificate? In those days, the people used to believe in the saying "Actions speak louder than words". There is no reason to change it. However, it feels great to have a document which proves that you are purified of all the sins and it makes you feel even better when you think of it as a proof to put across the fact that you're pure, especially because it is a tangible proof.
