Seddique Mir Mateen, the father of gunman Omar Mateen, spoke to reporters Monday morning about the Islamic terrorist attack in Orlando committed by his son.
He said the attack went against everything he taught his son, and that he condemns what he did. He said if he had known what his son was going to do, “I would’ve arrested himself myself.” He claims he doesn’t know why his son did such a thing, and that his whole family is in shock.
“As a father, I don’t want any father to go through what we are going through.”
