Like any institution, religion has bad actors.

Muhammad Ali gave up his heavyweight boxing title and served jail time rather that go to war in Viet Nam.

Cat Stevens also accepted the Pillars of Islam.
-There is no God but God
-Five prayers a day
-One month of fasting and meditation
-Alms to the needy
-A Pilgrimage to Mecca.

For an insider's view, for what it's worth.
