Would YOU allow a church, temple or synagogue to be built it Saudi, Pakistan or Malaysia??

As a recent revert to Islam, I find the recurring argument of comparing the tolerances of other nations to be absolutely irrelevant in this instance. Muslims in Britain are as much British and have the same rights as non-Muslim Britons and should not be expected to bear the blame for what happens in a country overseas.. which strictly speaking isn't following a Shariah system anyway. To put it very simply, British Muslims are here to stay, people need to keep up with the times and get beyond the Pakistani go home mentality.
