Perkasa wants gov't to boycott 'pro-LGBT' Starbucks, Microsoft

Modified 2 Jul 2017, 8:41 am

Malay rights pressure group Perkasa has urged the public and Putrajaya to boycott companies that support the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, citing in particular popular coffee chain Starbucks.

According to Amini Amir Abdullah, the group's Islamic affairs bureau head, Putrajaya should also revoke business licenses of such companies, including Microsoft.

"(Their business license should be revoked) because they support homosexual marriages and the LGBT community, which is against our country's aspirations and the national agenda," said Amini Amir in a statement today.
