Certain facts about Indonesia create a feeling of respect. It is the biggest Muslim majority country (but not an Islamic state). I read this recent news - Indonesia gifts U.S. a Saraswati statue. It is not something new that they have done. Indonesia has a long tradition of Hindu symbology and characters in its culture. Be it official mascot of their military intelligence (hanuman), Ganesha on currency note of 20K rupiah, the logo of Bali, Statues of characters from Mahabharata and Ramayana at different places or their national motto and many other things. Here is another link.
