In recent years, the infiltration of Islamic fundamentalism and extremism into the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region is threatening the region's social stability and healthy economic and social development. We should resolutely resist the penetration of extremist religious ideas, says Xinjiang Daily. Excerpts:

As we all know, the rise of Islam has more than 1,400 years of history and it has developed into a world religion for multiple nationalities. After spreading across the world and going through different stages of development, Islam shows two essential features: unity and diversity.

Muslims around the world have different ethnic cultures, which is reflected in their respective customs, literature and art, values, thoughts and feelings. These are part of a nation's cultural traditions and characteristics.

Yet although Muslims in different parts of the world may have different rituals, customs, clothing and many other aspects of life, they share their belief in Islam. As long as Muslims around the world do not violate the basic tenets of Islam, their colorful traditional culture will be recognized by most of the world's Muslim communities. It is the existence of these differences that has created the colorful and diverse Islamic culture and civilization.
