But the boy's dad argues that he is fine and if circumcision was done it will result in severe physical and mental stress.

The AP, couple's 2003 divorce decree has given the rights to decide on the boy's circumcision to his father.

The mother's attorney, Mr Tracy Rizzo, said since the boy's father ex-wife is concerned with Jewish religion, he too.

But the Judge, Jordan Kaplan ordered to submit additional arguments in writing for both parties. This case thus puts light over the worldwide views about circumcision (removal of the foreskin of the penis).

A report from U.S. says since some parents are against this medical procedure, the of boys undergoing circumcision has dropped from 90% (1970) to 60% (2006).
