+1 for D

Split 1:
Unfortunate/ Unfortunately
Unfortunate is correct here
Hence Eliminate A, C, E.

Between B and D, option D is parallel. Please refer below for errors

Another split which eliminates all other options except D:
Protest to X for initiating Y is wrong
Protest for X to initiate Y is correct idiom. Only D follows

A) Unfortunately that priests had to come out of their cloisters and taking to street to protest to the government of Afghanistan for initiating action in the matter.

B) It is unfortunate that priests came out of their cloisters and take to street protest to the government of Afghanistan to initiate action in the matter. --> Came out is not parallel to take to street

C) Unfortunately that priests had come out of their cloisters and taken to street protest to the government of Afghanistan to initiate action in the matter.

D) It is unfortunate that priests had to come out of their cloisters and take to street protest for the government of Afghanistan to initiate action in the matter. --> Had to come out and Had to take to street. Correct Parallelism.

E) It is unfortunately that priests came out of their cloisters and took to street protest to the government of Afghanistan to initiate action in the matter.
