Australian Senator Fraser Anning has blamed Muslim immigration for the #NewZealandTerroristAttack on two mosques in Christchurch. Stating that he was opposed to "any form of violence", Anning claimed that the atrocity highlighted the "growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence", in both New Zealand and Australia.
