'barbaric, evil' Isis - Muslim leader in Britain

Quoted from Report Aug 20 2014 from UK Independent:

Mohammed Shafiq, chief executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, said Muslims abhorred terrorists fighting for "evil" Isis.
He told The Independent: "In terms of James Foley, we condemn his death without reservation. We see that as an attack not just on an individual but an attack on everyone. We believe in the sanctity of life and they have distorted Islamic teaching to justify their brutal acts.
"The Koran is very clear about sanctity of life and rules on warfare. Nowhere in those rule does it say anything about beheading people or being barbaric in this way.
"Isis is a barbaric, evil terrorist organisation that needs to be confronted. They don't represent Islam, it does not represent Muslims or Muslim organisations and they need to be stopped."
In a statement, the Muslim Council of Britain condemned Isis' actions in the Middle East: "Each day ISIS seeks to carry out an act more barbarous than the day before, craving the oxygen of publicity to give credibility to their heinous acts. We condemn unreservedly their psychopathic violence, whether it is on minorities, on civilians, or on fellow Muslims.
"Isis does not speak for Islam, and has been repudiated by all Muslims. Their message only appeals to those who are easily duped by their twisted message purporting to be Islam."
