Half of Finns hold at least some suspicions about Islam

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. Finns take a positive view of people who resemble them in appearance, culture, or other characteristics. Attitudes become more negative, the more people deviate from the prevailing to skin colour, culture, or some other characteristic.
