I understand not all other religions require baptism to be saved. However, the Bible states multiple times that Baptism is necessary to be saved. "Peter replied, ?Repent and be baptized,every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins.And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."" (Acts 2:38)
It depends on what religion you believe in. Not all religions have baptism, so for any that do not, baptism not only is not needed, it is undesirable. Even many that perform baptisms do not require them to be saved. For an example all Christian sects, to the best of my knowledge, perform baptisms, but in many, so long as you are a good person, ask for forgiveness for sins, and accept Jesus, you can get into heaven. I know Catholic dogma is more rigid and requires baptism, so from their perspective yes it is required, but for many religious beliefs baptism is either optional or not done at all.
