The former Roihuvuori mosque of Said Ahmed was a well-known ISIS recruitment site, from where several Finnish terrorist converts went to Syria and prepared terrorist acts.
According to the police’s preliminary investigation, the men, who were planning to travel to Syria, got to know each other at the Roihuvuori mosque in Helsinki. The mosque, now located in Malmi, is known as a mosque for converts.
When Finnish journalists visited this mosque, they were met with anti-Semitic comments and hostile behaviour.

- Our religion is not a circus,“ another chimes in, before walking out with his jacket flapping.
