ISIS jihadis ARE driven by Islam and the world needs to accept that no matter how ‘uncomfortable’ the facts, says the Muslim man in charge of BBC Religion

The BBC’s head of religion has said although it is ‘uncomfortable’ to accept, the ideology behind ISIS is based on Islamic doctrine.

Aaqil Ahmed, the first Muslim to hold the post, said it was untrue to suggest that ISIS had nothing to do with Islam, despite the fact that the majority of Muslims do not agree with the extremist group.
