Ordinary Finnish Muslims are uninterested in calls to jihad
Militant Islamic radicalism is a threat to our lifestyle attained through painstaking efforts, views the average Muslim living in Finland.
"The majority of us are diligent working people who pay their taxes and meet mortgage payments," says Hossein Bahmanpour, a 30-year-old student of mathematics, in his home in Helsinki. "People like me become furious when someone starts preaching that we should take off to wage war somewhere."
Bahmanpour, the son of an Iranian father and a member of the local Shia community, estimates that most people who leave their country of residence to wage war abroad are socially alienated.
