Anning came under heavy criticism following his statement blaming “Muslim immigration” for the terrorist attacks on the Christchurch mosques yesterday.
“I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman,” Anning said.
“However, whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand of the increasing Muslim presence,” he claimed.
The Australian Senator also criticized Islam in the statement, calling the religion a “violent ideology.”
“Let us be clear, while Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators,” he added.
