JAKARTA, Indonesia - A mother has claimed that a genie circumcised her 10-month-old son while she was cooking breakfast, the state news agency Antara
The report did not say whether the toddler, Riyan Abdullah, experienced any complications as a result of the operation, which allegedly took place
early Wednesday close to the town of Tasikmalaya, on Java island 250 miles southeast of Jakarta, the agency reported.
"When I heard Riyan crying, I went straight to his bedroom and couldn't believe what my eyes saw," Riyan's mother, identified only as Ineng, told
Antara. "He had been circumcised."
The family immediately suspected it was the work of a genie, belief in which is widespread in Indonesia. They summoned a local paranormal to the house
who confirmed their suspicions, the report said.
More than 90 percent of Indonesia's 210 million are Muslim, though many still believe in sprits and the unseen world. According to Islamic tradition,
Indonesian boys are normally circumcised, usually when they reach the age of 6 or 7.
