During a counter-terrorism legislation debate on Monday, Ms Hanson made a personal dig at Ms Faruqi, which she recited again on Wednesday.
‘I will take you to the airport and put you on a plane and wave you away,’ she said.
The One Nation leader is already being sued by Ms Faruqi for similar comments she made on social media site X earlier this year.
Ms Faruqi’s colleague, Larissa Waters, on Wednesday asked Senate President Sue Lines to order Hanson to withdraw the ‘despicable’ and ‘race based’ comment.
Ms Hanson was temporarily gagged after initially refusing the request, before she later withdrew the ‘unparliamentary’ comments, avoiding further censure.

‘It is tantamount to saying, “Go back to where you came from”,’ Ms Waters said.
‘As if Senator Faruqi is not an Australian. As if Senator Faruqi is not a citizen of this country.
‘As if she is not an elected representative for the people of New South Wales.’
Ms Hanson responded to Ms Waters’ request by repeating her speech from Monday.
‘I said Senate Faruqi, I will tell you again, if you don’t see yourself as loving, as loving this country and abiding by the laws of the country, I have no problem. I will actually take you to the airport,’ Ms Hanson said.
Ms Lines then ordered Ms Hanson to withdrew the ‘personal reflection’, to which Hanson said: ‘That is a serious matter, let me think about it. Let me think about it.
‘Look, Senator Faruqi, there’s a tissue here if you’d like.’
Ms Lines, who did not reside over Monday’s Senate, told Ms Hanson ‘personal reflections’ are against Senate policy and again ordered her to withdraw.
‘I am in the chamber now. I am the president. You made a personal reflection,’ she said.
‘It’s not up for debate. I asked you to withdraw that and I remind you again, you need to withdraw,’ she said.
However, Ms Hanson argued she ‘used to make those same statements at immigration ceremonies’ and was ‘speaking on behalf of millions of Australians’.
On her last chance to withdraw the comment, Ms Hanson said: ‘Well I expect senators in this place to respect the Australia people and our laws.’
Ms Faruqi, who was hugged by colleagues as she left the Senate, requested people be held accountable for what they say in the chamber.
‘Because that is how we set the standard in this place. By holding people accountable for what comes out of their mouths, especially … language which is a racial slur,’ she said.
Pauline Hanson was temporarily gagged from speaking in the Senate after telling Pakistan-born Greens Senator Mehreen Faruqi (above): ‘I will take you to the airport and put you on a plane and wave you away’
However, One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts defended Ms Hanson’s speech saying she ‘did not refer to race and did not even refer to skin colour’.
‘[Hanson] referred to going home. That’s it. And yet this is yet again another stitch up because you’re scared of Senator Hanson,’ he said.
After Ms Hanson refused to withdrew her personal remark about Faruqi, Ms Lines issued a rare gag order against Hanson speaking in Senate until she had reviewed her comments.
Ms Hanson walked back into the senate just before 7.15pm and announced she would withdraw her comment.
‘I withdraw any remarks considered unparliamentary this week,’ she said.
Ms Faruqi released a statement on Thursday saying Ms Hanson should be held to account.
‘If Parliament is to be a safe workplace, then it needs to set a standard that any form of bigotry and racism are unacceptable,’ she said.
‘People who look like me have all been told to ‘go back to where they come from’ at one point or another, and it is harmful and unacceptable every single time.
‘I’ve copped it more times than I can count, and so have many others in the community. Enough is enough!’
