Fraser Anning will be censured over Christchurch comments: PM

Mr Morrison said there had been discussions between Senators Mathias Cormann and Penny Wong about a bipartisan motion when Parliament returns in April.

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?"

The Queensland Senator went on to claim that the real cause of the bloodshed that's left at least 49 people dead, is New Zealand's immigration policy which "allowed Muslims fanatics to migrant to New Zealand in the first place".

Dr Jneid also encouraged all mosques and places of worship in Australia to be extra vigilant - and for members of the Muslim community to be particularly mindful of their safety in the coming days.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and other politicians roundly condemned Anning over his latest statement, and Morrison characterized it as "disgusting".

Last year, in a Parliament speech, he reportedly called for a "final solution" to Muslim immigrants, recalling the term used by Holocaust-era Nazis to describe the extermination of Jews in Europe.

"While families in Christchurch mourn for loved ones they've lost, an obscure Australian Senator saw this act of terrorism and tragedy as an opportunity to blame the murder victims", Mr Shorten said.

"I find him absolutely disgraceful", Gilbert said.

Anning's final solution ― a vote to ban Muslims from the country ― was ignored and lawmakers across the aisle came together to decry the racist politician.

Anning continued to say that Muslims are usually the perpetrators of violence and that Islam is "the religious equivalent of fascism". "You might find you like it".

"It is heart-breaking that people, praying in a mosque, should be mowed down". "Just a nasty, ugly waste of human life".

He said police have told the multi-faith and multicultural communities in Queensland they will do everything they can to ensure their safety, even though they know there is no credible threat at this time in the State.

Fraser also tweeted a number of Islamophobic messages on Friday in the hours after the attack.
