Indonesia: Instagram Gay Comic issue

Associated Press/Star Tribune, Gay Muslim comic gone from Instagram after Indonesia warning

"An Instagram account that published comic strips depicting the struggles of gay Muslims in Indonesia has disappeared following a frenzy of outrage online in the world's biggest Muslim nation.
"The Ministry of Communications said the account under the username Alpatuni was pornographic, a violation of a law on information and electronic transactions. In a statement Wednesday, the government said Instagram had "fulfilled" its request made in a warning letter for the account to be removed."
