Mir Seddique, Omar Mateen’s Father: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know


Mir Seddique, also known as Seddique Mateen. (Youtube)

NBC reported that Mir Seddique is the father of Omar Mateen, the suspect in the Orlando Nightclub shooting that left 50 people dead and 53 people injured. Mateen called 911 and pledged an allegiance to ISIS before the killings.

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.

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.”

The New York Daily news interviewed a former elementary teacher of Mateen’s, Kathleen Zurich, who said she blames Seddique “for all of this.” Zurich said Seddique ignored his son’s behavior, which was totally “out-of-control.” She said, “He was in denial about his son even then, and would say, ‘Oh Omar, he does nothing wrong.’ One of the teachers told his father, ‘If he continues like this, picking on other kids, he’s going to end up shot.’ The father was a pig. He always felt like he was the victim. He was never mean to me because he knew I had his son’s best interest in mind. But he was disrespectful to women at large. He just felt women were not to be valued.'”

Seddique owns a non-profit company, “The Durand Jirga, Inc.,” based in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Here’s what you need to know now:

1. He Has Declared His Candidacy for the Afghan Presidency

Only hours before the massacre in Orlando, Seddique 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.

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.”

In Seddique’s most recent Youtube video, he declares his candidacy for the Afghan presidency. However, the video came a year after Afghanistan presidential elctions were held, which raises questions. In the video he goes back and forth between topics and even seems incoherent at times. Seddique uses the Dari language, and not Pashto, the language of Pushtuns, which adds another element of mystery to the video.

In the video below, Seddique says he does not believe his son is “whatever you call it,” meaning gay. Homosexuality is very much against his religion, and what he says about it could greatly impact his hopes to become the next President of Afghanistan.

3. He Said the Attack Had Nothing to Do With Religion

Despite his strong political and religious views, Saddique insists the Orlando mass shooting has nothing to do with religion. He stated the following to NBC News:

“This has nothing to do with religion. We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident. We weren’t aware of any action he is taking. We are in shock like the whole country.”

Seddique said Mateen was enraged when he saw two men kissing a couple of months ago in Miami, and suspects the incident has something to do with the massacre.

    • Agreed. Why is this piece of shit family still allowed to be in US? Just don’t get it. These people are here only to exploit our country and refuse to assimilate. They don’t want to truly be Americans. Their true ties are to their ARAB homeland FIRST.

  1. time for deportation whole family aunts, uncles, etc. what the hell is the matter with the public in this country.

  2. Why is he not in prison, under the Homeland Security Act?
    Surely his every move, including where he shops, whom he talks to, his online presence are being tracked?

    He essentially condoned his sons actions, voicing his own disgust toward those whom are different from him.
    He tries to hide his views with his 1/2’assed attempt to explain his son’s behavior.

    Plain and simple – we do not need these people in North America.
    Send them back home in a dingy boat and wash our hands clear of this kind of scum.

    And for pete sake – clamp down the immigration policies already. Trump may be arrogant and extreme in his views, but we’re living in an extreme environment, requiring appropriate responses.

    Do I go to a muslim country, point and laugh at them while they pray on their knees?
    No – in fact, I’d likely be hung for such actions.

    So – why not just hold the father for an extended period of time. Easy peasy. The man needs to be reigned in before he takes similar actions as his son.

  3. was mir seddique a citizen in 1989 or is the shooter and anchor baby? are his parents naturalzed.? If so when? Come on media how abt some answers….

  4. Think about what this mans organization does ! Do you or I know where the money goes ? Why are these people still here ? Can’t be trusted , these are worse than snakes in the grass ! But Clinton’s honor of him speaks tons of her CHARACTOR , saying she is pro this and that and all along she goes where it pads her bank account ! Gays , Jews, BLACKS WE ARE ALL HER PAWNS .

  5. Once again people are missing the point.
    The point is that there is too frequently bizarre connections and coincidences associated with the shooters in the false flag and staged crisis events.
    The psychopaths who’ve hijacked the U.S. are proving to be a fairly small group that has no choice but to use & re-use its own members/agents and their friends & family as characters in in these events.
    The goal isn’t to boot this Seddique guy from the U.S.; the goal is to track him, and the other characters from all the other events, and build is database of who’s connected to who, then we can, hopefully find out who the ring leader is. At the moment, my guess is the CIA.
    Give an organization virtually unlimited surveillance abilities, covert activity abilities & resources, with an absurdly broad mission statement and no genuine oversight, and, sooner or later, it will become the most powerful entity in the world.

  6. I am a Muslim and a Pakistani and i personally believes that these Muslim immigrant terrorists from all over the world have destroyed America and western world in the name of Islam.

    I’m not a very religious person though, but as much as i know about Islam.

    (The Qur’an), clearly says that ”whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind”.

    So i personally believes that they are clearly not following Islam. They are just trying to use the name of Islam for their shameful acts.

    i think now its time for the western world to bane those Muslim Immigrants from all over the world to enter in their country. In my opinion this is the only way to stop terrorism in your countries. Or otherwise these sick minded people will destroy your countries as they’ve destroyed our country in the name of Religion.

    As i have mentioned above i’m a Muslim and i’m 100% confident that 98% of the population of our country are strongly against of IsIs, Taliban etc, because they are the enemies of humanity they’ve not only destroyed our country but also the whole world in the name of Religion Islam.
