The recent New Zealand terror attack has left the world stunned but Australian senator Fraser Anning made some shocking comments. While talking to the media, Anning blamed Muslim immigration for these dastardly attacks. He justified the Christchurch terror attack that left 49 people dead. While Anning was having a press conference in Melbourne, an unidentified youth threw an egg at him. Anning turned around and slapped the young man hard before he had to be stopped by a security guard. The video of the same is going viral on social media.

Anning has drawn international condemn for his offensive comments on the serious issue. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison also called Anning's comments as 'appalling' and 'ugly' with 'no place in Australia.' His offensive remarks probably fuelled the youth behind him with anger that he could not resist his actions. Anning in a spur of action turned around and hit him back.
