Unfortunately, Britain's continued interference in Muslim lands is showing no signs of abating; the plundering of resources, the murdering of innocent (Muslim) men, women and children and the forced indoctrination of the satanic democratic creed have become hallmarks of a brutal regime led by a very brutal dictator.
Now I have a question. After reading the above, why would they choose to
even live in England? Why live the country you believe to have wronged you
& your people in such a manner?

For most of them, this is their country.
Why do so many people make a distinction between Muslims and non-Muslims complaining about their government and society ?
These boards are full of anti-establishment and anti-government rhetoric, yet as soon as some Muslims voice similar views, lots of people criticise them for doing so.
It's complete double standards.
There is a common misconception among Muslims today, that they are obliged to obey the law of the land in whatever country they reside, many advocates or supporters of this call quote Imaam Abu Hanifah (rh) as evidence, and indeed Imam Abu Hanifah (rh) did say, "Obey the law of the land" but the question is, which land? Was he living in the land of the Romans or was he living in the Islamic State? Therefore, which law was he saying we must obey?

So by your reasoning if my English Christian parents had given birth to me in...say...Helmund province, what do you think would happen if I put together a like minded group when I reached adult hood , and started to preach to the indigenous population that their religious views were wrong, and that they should all embrace Christianity or burn in hell........do you think the Afghan authorities would allow me to organise protests and marches?

The reason these fanatics are able to speak freely in a foreign land, and to have their marches and demonstrations.......is because of the very people they protest against!
I have absolutely no idea what would happen to you, as you are talking about another country's jurisdiction, rather than Britain.
Quite what the legal system of Afghanistan has got to do with any of this, i do not know.
It's not a foreign land for most of them; they are usually British. Instead of celebrating the fact that we live in a country where we are tolerant and fair to people who harbour just about every view under the sun, you appear to be lamenting this fact !
