Terrorist Seddique Mir Mateen Still Free
Despite his open support of the Taliban, his posting of a video around the time of the shooting proclaiming his presidency of Afghanistan, his extremist views, Seddique Mir Mateen has not been arrested.
Mir Seddique, who also goes by the name Seddique Mateen, said the attack had nothing to do with religion, but is in support of the Afghan Taliban. He also declared his candidacy for the Afghan presidency.
Only hours before the massacre in Orlando, Seddique Mir Mateen posted a video called Provisional Government of Afghanistan on a Facebook page. It appears that he is pretending to be the president of Afghanistan, and orders the arrest of multiple Afghan political figures.The show is known for “its anti-US tirades” and “pro-Taliban” remarks, a former Afghan official told the Associated Press.
Dressed in army attire, he stated:
“I order national army, national police and intelligence department to immediately imprison Karzai, Ashraf Ghani, Zalmay Khalilzad, Atmar, and Sayyaf. They are against our countrymen, and against our homeland.”
There are several videos posted on a Youtube channel under Seddique Mateen’s name. In one of the videos Seddique denounces the Pakistani government and expresses gratitude towards the Afghan Taliban. He stated:
“Our brothers in Waziristan, our warrior brothers in [the] Taliban movement and national Afghan Taliban are rising up. Inshallah the Durand Line issue will be solved soon.”
Omar Mateen’s father is now saying Pulse nightclub should share the blame for his son’s massacre of 49 innocent people.
Seddique Mateen made that statement after inviting reporters to his home in Port St. Lucie, FL. He believes the club was woefully unprepared for the number of patrons it had that night.
On June 13, Seddique posted on Facebook that he was “saddened by his son’s actions during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan,” as translated by CBS News. But then he goes onto say, “God will punish those involved in homosexuality…not an issue that humans should deal with.”
