It was meant to be a quiet night studying at the university library, but it turned out to be anything but for Abdullah Qaiser.

While driving through the university campus, the 21-year-old international student's car was stopped by a group of around seven people who set upon him.

Mr Qaiser said a man shouted at him to “f*** off” and to “go back to your f***ing country.”

“'You don't belong here, you are a Muslim’, the usual racial comments,” Mr Qaiser told SBS News.

Mr Qaiser's nose was smashed by a man wearing knuckle dusters and doctors say he will likely need reconstructive surgery.
