Yes it is mandatory to remove that tooth.
No its not mandatory to remove wisdom tooth. If its partially impacted or tilted toward adjacent tooth then it can be removed. But if it is properly in place with adjacent tooth it can be saved by root canal treatment but make sure the tooth is not extremely or grossly decayed.
