The term of terrorism has been so confused that there is no exact definition. The problem is confined to political terrorism, which occurs when a group, whether holding governmental office or outside government, resolves to pursue a set of ideological objectives by methods which not only subvert or ignore the requirements of domestic and international law, but also rely for their success primarily upon the use of violence or illegal practices. This definition permits regimes as well as opposition groups to be described as terrorists.
However, the term terrorism can be used by any entity for its own self-interest to achieve political, economic and social ends.
Since the US started global war against terrorism, after the 9/11 tragedy, various political experts have opined that terrorism comes in a variety of forms such as religious terrorism, secular terrorism, military terrorism, state sponsored terrorism and so on.
