Local Finns Party pol under fire for racist slurs against Muslim children
First vice-president of the Finns Party Pirkanmaa district group Terhi Kiemunki took to Facebook on Sunday to post a series of comments about children whom she observed going door to door as part of the local tradition in which Easter witches visit homes to bless them in exchange for treats. The tradition has ancient roots in both Sweden and Karelia.
Seeing children dressed in hijabs engaging in the Easter tradition, Kiemunki asked on her wall, "Is this some kind of integration [programme] where Muslim children go around giving Easter blessings? Or does Allah also have some kind of anniversary today?"
"It's a pity I don't have any condoms ..." she added, which some readers took to mean that she would have given them to the children's parents.
