Islam and Muslims are often portrayed as ‘bad’ in Scandinavian media and public debates and not in a ‘bad ass’ kind of way. When polled Scandinavian populations link conflict and contentious issues to Islam, more than they do to Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism or any other religion. Framing religions as good or bad is a common practice in both every day conversations and in public debates.
