Washington: Orlando shooting attacker Omar Mateen's father Mir Seddique has made an explosive revelation!
Mir Seddique has said that Omar Mateen had been angry when he saw two men kissing in Miami recently.
"We are in shock like the whole country," Omar Mateen's father said.
"This has nothing to do with religion," Omar Mateen's father added.
The gunman Omar Mateen, 29, was killed by a SWAT team after he took hostages at Pulse, a popular gay night club.
Islamic State (IS) terrorist group has claimed the responsibility for the shootings in which at least 50 people were killed and 53 others injured when a "lone wolf" gunman opened fire early on Sunday in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, where a state of emergency has been declared.
In a message published on the group’s semi-official news agency, Amaq, it described gunman Omar Mateen as a “soldier of the caliphate”.
