They still have separate swimming sessions, so multiculturalism is in play here, it’s just that it no longer has an out in the open shari seal of approval on it. This is a situation that’s better than before, but multiculturalism has to be nipped in the bud for good. KGS
Helsinki Drops Muslim Women-Only Pool Sessions
The City of Helsinki will stop reserving special hours for Muslim women to use the public pool in Jakomäki. In the future, the timeslot for Muslim ladies will be open to all women.
Other swimmers had criticised the practice, according to Teemu Raatikainen, who manages the pool.
Previously, the Jakomäki swimming hall blocked off Saturday mornings specifically for Muslim women. The women’s session followed a swimming class for Muslim girls.
The Jakomäki pool reopened on Wednesday after being closed for renovation. From now on, the pool will be open to all women—and off-limits to men—on Tuesday evenings.
The refurbished facility boasts new pool cleaning technology in addition to updated washrooms and saunas
