Say it ain't so - Islamic State: Islamic?

Aaqil Ahmed versus Islamic State

Charlie Peat cites BBC religion chief Aaqil Ahmed that "Islam inspires ISIS fanatics to commit horrific terror attacks" (Express, June 2, 2016):
[Concerning the Islamic State,] Muslim Aaqil Ahmed [- BBC's head of religion and ethics - ] described it is an "uncomfortable" truth that the bloodthirsty terrorist cult is being driven by "Islamic doctrine." He said: “I hear so many people say ISIS has nothing to do with Islam - of course it has. They are not preaching Judaism. It might be wrong, but what they are saying is an ideology based on some form of Islamic doctrine. They are Muslims. That is a fact and we have to get our head around some very uncomfortable things. That is where the difficulty comes in for many journalists, because the vast majority of Muslims won't agree with ISIS."
Well, if he says so . . .
