By Gao Bo and Cui Jia in Urumqi | China Daily | Updated: 2014-05-05 08:19

A letter written by 11 young Uygurs calling for their fellows to stand up against terrorism and religious extremism won massive public support after it was posted on social media.

The letter said terrorist attacks, including the recent one in Urumqi, capital of the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, did not benefit Uygurs, but made people prone to be on guard against the ethnic group and isolate Xinjiang.

It urges young people to stay away from religious extremism, which aims to build up forces against the government and create social chaos through terrorist attacks in the hope of causing a split in the country.
