Now known that Omar Mateen pledged allegiance to ISIS, was abusive and homophobic – his ex-wife and her father describe Omar as ‘an abusive and unstable man’
Seddique Mateen’s peculiar political passions and attempts at humor. He sometimes pretends to be the president of Afghanistan, and in the most recent episode, he announced he will run for that position — even though the election was held last year.
In one episode, he praises the Afghan Taliban while castigating the Pakistani government.
“Our brothers in Waziristan, our warrior brothers in Taliban movement and national Afghan Taliban are rising up,” he said in Dari.

A former Afghan official told the Associated Press the show is filled with “anti-US tirades.”On the show, Mateem regularly shows a telephone number and post office box that traces back to the Manteen home in Fort Pierce, Fla. The show is broadcast on Payam-e-Afghan, a California station, according to the Post.
Hours after Omar Mateem was shot and killed by a SWAT team, his father awkwardly came to his defense by saying the slaughter was not motivated by religion. Instead, Mateem was “very angry” after seeing two men in Miami kissing near his family months ago, his father told NBC News.
But law enforcement later said the shooter pledged allegiance to ISIS right before the assault, and the terror group claimed responsibility for the deadliest shooting in American history. The killer’s ex-wife and her father described Omar Mateen as an abusive and unstable man.
When Seddique Mateen, whose name was initially reported as Mir Seddique,told NBC his family was “in shock like the whole country” over the attack, he possibly was being economical with the truth.
