There is a little difference between a militant and a terrorist. Both also have some similarities, because they tend to use violence to achieve their needs. Militancy and terrorism are two international problems facing the world today. There are so many militant groups, as well as terrorist’s groups. Most known terrorist groups fight because of religion. However, a militant differs from a terrorist in some ways. A militant is someone that is fighting for a particular cause, and he tends to use violence to achieve his goals.
The good thing about militancy is that, it often fights for what seems right. Militancy mostly arises when some set of people are being maltreated. A terrorist, on the other hand, is someone who uses violence in fighting for a particular ideology and doctrine and makes victim to behave in such manner. Terrorists mostly fight for religion purposes. They kill whoever opposes their beliefs. Terrorists are formed through indoctrination.
