Half of Finns hold at least some suspicions about Islam

Finnish media said to shy away from subject of immigration

About half of Finns have at least some suspicions about Islam, while a very small minority – about ten percent – have a positive attitude toward the religion. The rest take a neutral position, or have no opinion. However, overall attitudes toward Islam have become more clarified compared with the situation in the 1990s, said Tuomas Martikainen, a researcher of religious science, at a seminar on Islam in Finland held in Turku on Saturday.
