The father of Omar Mateen has blamed security staff at Pulse nightclub for not preventing the murder of 49 innocent people.
Seddique Mateen said religion had nothing to do with the massacre and that he wished his son was alive so he could ask him why he did it.
His son, Omar, a 29-year-old bodybuilder of Afghan origin, shot down clubbers and injured dozens at the Orlando club on Sunday morning.
Mr Mateen told Sky News: ‘The first thing I want to say is that the club should have had good security. The club (with) 300 or 400 people are coming, they should have had a good security.
‘My personal feeling (is) he is responsible, the club is responsible for not having good security. If there was a good communication with the security there, they could have protected much better.’
His son, who had pledged his allegiance to ISIS on the phone to police, was killed by SWAT officers when he opened fire after crawling out of a hole made to rescue clubbers.
