"His demand for an apology over my statement related to the LGBT issue and communism is an attempt to prevent me from exposing their evil agenda," the Gunung Semanggol assemblyman claimed.
The PKR president issued a letter of demand to Razman on Nov 8, claiming that his speech had tarnished his reputation. Anwar is seeking an apology and RM5mil in damages.
Razman, who is also incumbent Gunung Semanggol asssemblyman, said he made the statement on Nov 6, adding that Anwar's RM5mil demand does not affect his stance.
He also highlighted concerns that Pakatan Harapan is dominated by DAP, saying that PAS had declared the party as its "main enemy" since GE14.
He also claimed that the government led by Pakatan for 22 months allowed for efforts to "normalise communism" and promote the LGBT lifestyle.
He added that he is willing to debate Anwar.
"We can meet at any time. I want to ask him if the court decision is wrong ... and if he said that he won't amend the law to allow LGBT activities?
"If what he said is true, then fine. I will help to clear his name," he said.
