Take a look at the images:



The dissimilarity outweighs the similarity. BK's rendition of an ice cream scoop is more conical in shape, has differently-shaped upward strokes, has the rightmost stroke physically attached to the rest of the diagram, and has no scribbling similar to the portion of the Allah script resembling two accent marks and the numbers 9 and 3.
