Australian has paid respect to Queen Elizabeth II, lighting up arenas and projecting her portrait on the Sydney Opera House.
'Unless you're in a big city, a metropolitan city, and you're not white.
'If you're more on the browner end of life the Aussies can be quite mean, especially if you're Asian'.
Dr Uddin said racism was just the 'tip of the iceberg' and that one of his biggest problems was obtaining a visa.
'That's what I found was very hard,' he said. 'And actually, I now recommend to any F1 or F2, do not go to Australia.'
F1 and F2 refer to doctors undertaking a two-year postgraduate medical training program known as the Foundation Program.
Doctors are required to complete the course so they can make the transition from medical school to specialist and general practice.

'That's the good part of going to Australia. It's easy to get a job. I applied online, I had a five minute interview.'
Video of the podcast was shared to TikTok where some social media users agreed with his claims.
'Aussie. true. and a lot of it is quiet insidious racism which is very hard to address,' one person wrote.
