Ideology of Azerbaijanism - as the basis of national unity - II

Basis of Azerbaijanism is not only about language, religion, traditions or provision of those values through normative legal acts in the book. The author stresses that the concept should be improved as dynamic process too. 

Moreover, factors forming Azerbaijanism were given in the book. These are:

1) National-ethnic reality of Azerbaijan; 

2) language; 

3) Islam; 

4) ethnography, general sign of national origin;

5) topography; 

6) examples of cultural and archeological materials;

8) national-spiritual culture.  

Academician Budag Budagov made remarks about prof Selaheddin Khalilov’s "Heydar Aliyev and Azerbaijanism” book. According to him, the book was about maintenance and attendance  of ethnic minorities ( Tat, Talish, Kurd and others) in formation of Azerbaijanism ideology. The book is the first scientific-philosophical monograph written about this theme  and describing unbreakable unity of ethnic minorities and people living in Azerbaijan.  

Throughly explaning Azerbaijanism ideology in the foreword of the  "Heydar Aliyev and Azerbaijanism concept” book Academician Ramiz Mehdiyev describes 2 significant aspects of existence of Azerbaijanism ideology. According to him, various elements of this concept may be in families or in various unities. However,  improvement of Azerbaijanism ideology demands its implementation in all spheres of social-political and cultural life under the auspices of an independent state  but not just as national ethnic value. 

Thereby, Ramiz Mehdiyev forecasts further development of Azerbaijanism ideology in future and coordinates it with existence of  independent Azerbaijani state.  (Vəliyeva S. "Azərbaycançılıq milli ideologiya və ədəbi-estetik təlim kimi", Bakı-2002. səh-109-110.)

Of course, Azerbaijanism ideology is a join concept of all ethnic groups living in Azerbaijan. Almost, Azerbaijan has determined its new development dynamics in domestic and foreign policy, social-cultural relations and so on. Assessing these features highly, academician Ramiz Mehdiyev stressed that starting the year of 2003 national idea  enriched with new aspects of development of the state and its relations with the world. 

Azerbaijani national leader Heydar Aliyev’s approach and state policy toward ethnic minorities living in Azerbaijan is remarkable in terms of Azerbaijanism ideology. He repeatedly stated that Azerbaijan is a motherland of every ethnic group and minority, as well as, each one who lives in Azerbaijan.
