Senator Fraser Anning has been egged at an organised event in Melbourne which saw protestors and supporters of the controversial identity clash in wild scenes.

Australia's prime minister, Scott Morrison, called Anning's comments "disgusting".

A right-wing member of the Australian parliament blamed the murder of 49 people at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, on Muslim immigration.

WATCH: This is the moment Senator Fraser Anning was egged by a teenage boy during a press conference in Melbourne. The teenager was filming on his phone as he smashed the egg on top of Anning's head.

In response, Anning turned around and struck the kid twice in the face, before the egger was tackled to the ground.

An anti-immigrant manifesto purportedly written by the man in police custody was posted on Twitter and the online forum 8chan shortly before the shootings.

Anning said Muslims had been the victims in the Christchurch attack but "usually they are the perpetrators". "It is the religious equivalent of fascism", he said.

Calling the religion as a violent ideology, Senator Anning said that Islam is a violent ideology of a "despot" acting as a religious leader.

Morgan added that it was a "disgusting statement". Australians will be utterly ashamed of this racist man.

Infantino's push to expand the 2022 edition is being forced on hosts Qatar and will require significant changes to its plan. He added that VAR will be used in the tournament, "the same as we did for the men's World Cup".

"It's not somerthing my government assosicates with or any one would seek to associate with".

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

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said that the 49 victims were from across the Muslim world.

On Sky News, political journalist Kieran Gilbert said someone with those views did not belong in parliament.

Many chose not to share the statement at all.

Anning was speaking to media and reportedly talking about "fake refugees" and the "threat of immigration" when the violence broke out. The mosques were full of worshippers attending Friday prayers. "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.

Others who supported his sentiment were also slammed.

"Come here you f***ing mongrel human", Senator Anning is heard saying as he reaches for the boy.
