By Nilufar Rizki and Jessica Damiana JAKARTA (Reuters) - A leader of Indonesia's second-largest Muslim organization has called for a boycott of Starbucks, saying that the international coffee chain's pro-gay stand risks ruining the "religious and cultured" core of the Southeast Asian nation. With the exception of the ultra-conservative Aceh province, homosexuality is legal in Indonesia. Anwar Abbas of Muhammadiyah, an organization that has around 30 million members, said the government should revoke Starbucks' operating license as the company's support for the LGBT community is "not in line" with the nation's ideology.
