The following is the English translation
of a letter originally written in Uighur script dated on
24 July 2009 by her son and daughter, and signed by her
children and her brother:
We are Rebiya
Kadeer's brother, son and daughter.
On July 5, a violent
riot occurred in Urumqi where we live, in which nearly
200 innocent people died, hundreds of vehicles were burned,
thousands people wounded and a great number of residents
lost their properties and livelihoods. Many evidences show
the riot was organised by the World
Uighur Congress, an organisation led by our mother
Rebiya Kadeer, and carried out by the local separatists.
In 2005, our mother was granted a parole to
attend medical treatment in the United
States. With the encouragement of the international anti-China
forces, she joined the movement coordinated by Uighur
separatists, religious extremists and international terrorists.
When an incident of ethnic clash happened between Uighur
and Han workers in Shaoguan, Guangdong Province, she went
online to distort
the facts. In the incident, 2 Uighur workers died, but
she would make up the figure of death toll to 50, and posted
fake photos of the alleged Uighur victims on the Internet,
which triggered Urumqi riot on July 5. Our mother Rebiya
Kadeer and her World Uighur Congress are directly responsible
for this violent incident, and must pay for their crimes.
On the day of July 5, about 6 hours before
the riot, our mother Rebiya Kadeer called us, saying something
big was going to happy. After the riot happened, we are
very angry with and deeply ashamed for her. Whoever committed
crimes, she must face
the consequences herself. We did not participate in the
incidence, we are innocent, and we are also the victims of
the riot. However, as Rebiya Kadeer's children and brother,
we are outraged by what she did, and want to say sorry to
all the victims and their families. Now half month has passed
since the riot, but your deep grievance are still felt for
losing loved ones, we sincerely forward our apologize to
you. In the meanwhile, we wish our Uighur brothers do not
believe what our mother says. All Chinese people regardless
of their ethnicity should united as one family and contribute
our part to build a better Xinjiang.
(Signed by Rebiya Kadeer's son, daughter and
July 24, 2009.
