There is nothing explicit in this article about this being a jihad plot.

Also, the intended target rather gives away what is going on. But how can a war be successfully fought if one side doesn’t even dare name the enemy?
“Helsinki police ‘foil terror plot,'” EuroNews, June 20, 2017 (thanks to L.):
Finnish Police say they have foiled a terrorist attack targetting a church in Helsinki.
The Temppeliaukio Church, a popular tourist attraction in the heart of the city built directly into a solid piece of stone, is less than a kilometer from the Finnish parliament and supposedly was a planned target for terrorists.
Finland’s Interior Minister Paula Risikko said: “The Finnish Security Intelligence Service (Supo) has made an assessment that the threat of terrorism has increased. A 2015 assessment indicated a high risk of a single terror attack and we have now elevated the general threat level. This means that while we already were very well prepared, now we are even more so.”…
The Nordic country has not witnessed attacks on the scale of other European states, however concern has increased in Helsinki following recent incidents in neighboring Russia and Sweden.
