Finns Party Helsinki chair: Grand mosque is welcome
The chair of the Helsinki Finns Party group has said he supports the establishing of a grand mosque in the capital, so long as it doesn't have a minaret with "someone wailing at five in the morning".
Seppo Kanerva said the proposed mosque and multicultural centre, with a planned floor area of up to 20,000 square metres, was "welcome", and that it would promote peace between different religions.
The scheme has reportedly received a commitment from the royal family of Bahrain to finance the initial phase.
