Orlando Terrorist Receives Traditional Islamic Burial in Florida
Terrorist Omar Mateen, 29, received a traditional Islamic burial this week in a Sunni Muslim cemetery located more than three hours south of Pulse, the gay Orlando nightclub where he took the lives of 49 innocent people.
According to the Orlando Sentinel, Mateen’s body was prepared for burial by the Riyadh Ul Jannah Funeral Home, which lists itself as “a Muslim funeral home for the sole use of Sunni Muslims” on its website. His death certificate was issued on Wednesday afternoon.
Mateen’s body was buried in the Muslim Cemetery of South Florida in Hialeah Gardens, which furnishes the same address. Riyadh Ul Jannah is part of a non-profit foundation called the Bism Rabbik Foundation Inc.
