Sitora Alisherzoda Yusufiy’s father in-law, Mir Seddique Mateen said his son’s actions had nothing to do with religion, but he suspects Omar Mateen became upset after he saw two men kissing in Miami two months ago.
This has nothing to do with religion,’ he said. ‘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.
‘We were in Downtown Miami, Bayside, people were playing music. And he saw two men kissing each other in front of his wife and kid and he got very angry.
‘They were kissing each other and touching each other and he said, “Look at that. In front of my son they are doing that”. And then we were in the men’s bathroom and men were kissing each other”
