The moment a young man broke an egg on Australian Senator Fraser Anning's head

The same day at least 49 people were killed in two separate terror attacks at mosques in New Zealand, a sitting senator in Australia said immigration policies that allowed Muslim people to immigrate to New Zealand were to blame.

Britain's Home Secretary Sajid Javid has criticised an Australian Senator who appeared to suggest that Muslim immigration was the cause of a mass shooting at mosques in New Zealand that has left 49 dead.

"As always, left-wing politicians and the media will rush to claim that causes of today's shootings lie with gun laws or those who hold nationalist views but this is all cliched nonsense".

Although evidence of Anning sharing that statement has been removed from his social media accounts, he then wrote on his Twitter page, "Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?"

According to government data, Muslims make up around 1.1% of New Zealand's population.

An Australian senator is being heavily criticized for lashing out at Muslim immigrants in the wake of the horrific shootings at two New Zealand mosques.

New Zealand attacks revive 'painful' memories for Norway: PM
New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the shooting a "terrorist attack" and one of the country's darkest days. The shooter also released a 74-page manifesto, titled "The Great Replacement", online before the shooting.

"The remarks by Sen".

Independent Queensland Senator Fraser Anning has been slammed for his appalling response to the Christchurch terror attack. Those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament.

Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull echoed the sentiment.

Anning's statements echo messaging that the shooter himself says he was influenced by. "He is a disgrace to the Senate, and what is worse, by spreading hatred and turning Australians against each other, he is doing exactly what the terrorists want".

Anning has served as a senator since 2017.

A lot of people have been asking why I don't join Pauline Hanson's One Nation Party. The KAP was initially punished for not denouncing Anning's "final solution" speech but eventually expelled him for the comments.
