The incident was captured on camera from the stands as the players left the field and the footage was posted on Twitter.
The strong punishment has been imposed after FIFA announced in July that the minimum ban for racism was being doubled to 10 games.
In a separate case from 2022 World Cup qualifying in Asia, FIFA ordered Indonesia to play a game behind closed doors without fans over crowd disturbances in a game against Malaysia.
The Indonesia football federation was also fined 200,000 Swiss francs and its Malaysian counterpart was fined 50,000 Swiss francs.
