Muxlim is the brainchild of Mohammed El-Fatatry who moved to Finland in 2004 from the United Arab Emirates. Since that time he’s become a symbol of the supposed success of Finland’s multicultural project. El-Fatatry isn’t giving up too many details as to why the project failed.

At the moment, Muxlim.com site will take you to the founder and CEO, Mohamed El-Fatatry’s page where he’s marketing a future book. El-Fatatry himself is quiet about the current status of the site. He promises more details later in the spring upon the release of his book.
