I can see their point... Jeovah Witnesses are a bit like a Cult like the Mormons, demanding absolute obedience to the cause, handing over whatever you own, and .... originated in the US.

Best to practise your own religion quietly yourself, sharing it by demonstrating it quietly by your actions, and not trying to purposely coerce others into following you... and stay out of Politics (and vice versa) the two should never be mixed by Law Globally!
