An Australian senator who blamed the New Zealand terror attack on Muslim immigration has punched a 17-year-old boy after he was egged at an event in Melbourne.
Video footage recorded at the event appears to show Fraser Anning, a far-right independent Queensland senator, halfway through a press conference when the teenager cracked an egg over his head while filming with a mobile phone. The senator responded by punching the 17-year-old. The teenager was then tackled to the ground by Anning’s supporters and held in a chokehold.
The boy was later take away by police and released without charge. Victoria police are investigating the incident.
Anning was criticised on Friday after trying to seek attention by saying the mosque attack highlighted a “growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence” in Australian and New Zealand communities.
Fraser Anning will soon leave parliament – but his xenophobic message will not.
The Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, said Anning’s comments blaming the Islamic community for the shooting were “appalling and ugly and they have no place in Australia”.
The prime minister announced the government would censure him.
The Australian Labor party leader, Bill Shorten, said Anning was “chasing a headline”.
“I do wonder if he’s made Australians less safe overseas,” he said. “That’s another reason not to give this fool any more oxygen.”
A change.org petition calling for Anning’s expulsion from parliament has amassed about 250,000 signatures.
If that boy had done an egg-job on a MP here he would have been in real deep trouble, as former DAP member Jufazli Shi Ahmad found that out for a far less physical act, namely, insulting the PM in this land of "New" Malaysia.

Police attempted to arrest him at his house earlier today after a police report was lodged against him.
FMT reported (extracts): In a live-stream on his Facebook page today, Jufazli showed at least four police personnel in his house who had come to pick him up.
He said he refused to follow them as they did not have an arrest warrant.
The video received 310,000 views, attracted 33,000 comments and was shared 6,669 times.
At least one police report had been lodged against Jufazli for his alleged attacks on Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
In the 58-minute video, he continued to accuse Mahathir of various crimes, including corruption, power abuse and colluding with PAS president Hadi Awang and Sarawak head of state Taib Mahmud.
“I will not give full cooperation to the police if they do not follow the law and their own procedures,” he said in the video.
Jufazli had been a staunch supporter of the new federal government until early last month and had showered praises on Mahathir and his leadership.
