In order to further strengthen the unity of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang and promote the sustainable and healthy development of Xinjiang’s economy, every cadre and the masses must have a correct understanding of Xinjiang’s historical, ethnic and religious issues, and establish a Marxist view of the country, history, and religion. The concept of nationality, religion and culture is not only a question of cultural literacy, but also a question of scientific methods of thinking, and it is also an important manifestation of our politics. Practice has repeatedly proved that Marxist materialism and dialectics are the only scientific methods for us to examine and correctly understand Xinjiang’s history, ethnicity and religion. To understand and observe the historical, ethnic and religious issues in Xinjiang according to the Marxist historical materialism, we should reach a consensus on the following basic issues: First, as a product of a certain stage of development of human society, ethnicity and religion have The historical process of its occurrence, development and demise. Therefore, the ruling party of the proletariat should correctly view and handle ethnic and religious issues, and formulate and implement correct ethnic and religious policies. Second, Xinjiang has been a multi-ethnic area since ancient times, and it is also an area where multiple religions coexist. A large number of research results by Chinese and foreign scholars have fully confirmed this. Third, since the Qin and Han dynasties, Xinjiang has maintained close economic and cultural ties with the Central Plains, and is an integral part of China’s unified multi-ethnic country. Since the Han Dynasty unified the Western Regions and established the Protectorate of the Western Regions in 60 BC, despite the changes in Xinjiang’s history and many regime changes, since modern times, hostile forces at home and abroad have been trying to dismember Xinjiang and remove Xinjiang from the big family of the motherland. Split apart, but the fact that Xinjiang is an inalienable part of the motherland has never changed. The development of Xinjiang’s history has fully proved that the splitting plots of hostile forces at home and abroad could not be realized in the past and will never be successful in the future. Maintaining the reunification of the motherland and opposing ethnic divisions are the fundamental interests of the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang. It is also an inevitable trend of the social and historical development of Xinjiang, and no one can stop it. Fourth, in history, the people of all ethnic groups in Xinjiang have united, worked hard, worked hard, and sacrificed their blood. In the common struggle against imperialism, feudalism, and separatism, they formed a close relationship that blood is thicker than water. They not only created their own unique history and culture and enriched the treasure house of Chinese civilization, but also made their own contributions to the economic development and social progress of Xinjiang and the consolidation of China’s unified multi-ethnic country. Today’s political situation as a unified multi-ethnic country in our country and the great unity of all ethnic groups were bought by our forefathers with blood, and it was hard-won. We must cherish the unbreakable unity of the nations as much as our own eyes.
