Top 10 Terrorist Groups

List of terrorist groups that have caused chaos all around the world depending on where the victim country is, their religion, their race etc.

The Top Ten

1 Al-Qaeda

The truth is there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al-Qaeda.
Al-Qaeda is a product of a western intelligence.
Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by Western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.

Conclusion: USA is a mother of producing Terrorist Groups.

I like al Qaeda

Al Qaeda is ass now lol, Obama (even though I don't like him) took Osama out so now Al Qaeda is trash - Flyside

It's a killing machine

Let's be honest, all terrorist groups combined still are no where near Al Qaeda's power. Who carried out the most devastating terrorist attack of all time? Al Qaeda. Who hid from a whole countries military and wasn't found for 10 years? Al Qaeda's leader, Osama Bin Laden. And who, even when there leader has been killed and they have been overtaken by a terrorist group filled with lies and weakness, is still killing people form the cancer of 9/11? Al Qaeda. I'm a big fan of this terrorist group and it makes me sad to say that people don't know who Al Qaeda are. If they were still around today, ISIS would not exist. Think about that.


It's facts time -

Under the Obama administration, rebels were trained in Syria with 5the purpose of defeating Assad. Then, a portion of these rebels joined to form a group called ISIS. At first, USA was okay with this but after ISIS revealed their depraved intentions and publicly committed human rights violations, it was no longer possible for the USA to support ISIS. So the Obama administration decided to continue training rebels in Syria but this time they were trained to defeat ISIS. So essentially, the USA created ISIS. This is not surprising as the presence of a lot of terrorist groups would not have happened if it weren't for American interference. In a similar way, the USA created Taliban (to attack USSR in Afghanistan) and Al-Qaeda. Since ISIS were established fairly recently unlike Al-Qaeda, ISIS initially pledged allegiance to Al-Qaeda but separated from Al-Qaeda recently. The reason why ISIS is effective and feared (compared to other terrorist groups) is that they ...more

This is fund rising group by USA and Saudi to attack Iraq and then later Iran, Syria as enimy of USA AND Saudi, But I think, Saudi will pay the price after USA join with Ireasl to control the Arab and then the power of Islam will decrease will be owned by minded Jewish... So ISIS is the start of loosing Islam in the world... In anyway Killing the oldest Christian and demolish the heritage site is non acceptable, because one day if someone attacks Saudi and destroy mecca, then world will be silent like removing old deserved Christian heritage in Iraq and Syria.. Because can't control the situations.. So any violence can be very dangerous and derive somewhere else..

Are you sure the USA is involved? France would never be attacked by them, as the French helped us gain independence. - MKBeast

they have they're own religious nation and have beat al-Qaeda hard

Honestly ISIS even rival SAS (SAS always win) but still that makes them really powerful - Unnamed Google User Remade

3 Taliban

132 children and 8 teachers of Army Public School are killed by them. I just hate Taliban.

Previously known as the mujahideen; the Taliban has become little more than another pathetic radical Islam group that will continue to oppress the nations it exists in until the west wipes them out. They're not worthy of recognition at all. The mujahideen were... But not the Taliban.

Talibans are not human beings. They are wild animals, hungry, wild dogs waiting for a piece of meat... they are not Muslims.. they the the darkest side of this world, they do not follow Islamic principles, Islam tells us to kind, caring, Islam says that killing a man is killing humanity... i know one day they will suffer bitter death and cry bitter tears.. ALLAH will punish them

I hate the Taliban because they started the war in Afghanistan and Afghanistan was a peaceful country until the stupid Taliban came in and destroyed a lot of that country. I hate you Taliban!

4 Irish Republican Army

I thin Jon my opinion IRA are a very dangerous organisation (terrorist) but for a reason to protect there country IRA don't kill there own people but protect them I know this because I'm Irish I'm from Dublin I'm very into all the 1916 rising Michael Collins IRB and by far any Irish person except Northern Ireland because there on British but all republicans understand why IRA was created and did what they did and IRA are not cowards they were set up to fight and only reason they fought with bombs is because there things British couldn't figure out to make by them selves :P well and because the majority of British to people in IRA was far unfair even our own Irish people fought against the people trying to free our country well that didn't matter cause we still got Britain to give us our republic and only reason IRA took it is because Michael Collins made the short choice and there was nothing else he could do at that time he could have fought back for the rest but was shot by the IRA ...more

The IRA are by far the greatest and most intelligent terrorist group in the 20th century who started off fighting against the evil British army who treated the people of Ireland cruelly. In later years the IRA fought on behalf of the poor Roman Catholics of Belfast who were being treated like animals by the loyalists and also fought to make Ireland once again a united nation by reigning terror on the loyalist streets of northern ireland.

Grew up with these vermin, do as you're told or get kneecapped if you're lucky. Absolute scum bags and cause more fear to there so called own people than anyone else. And to the prick from Dublin in the last comment, you haven't a clue or been shot twice by these COWARDS.
IRA stands for I RAN AWAY

IRA are greatly equipped and intelligent group who know a lot, FBI MI5 don't have a patch on what the IRA know that's why there so effective. The IRA stood up for people when no one else would. The black and tans destroyed communities family s and lives would you like to be shot or tared and feathered, of course your going to fight back wouldn't you. And why shouldn't we our country was invaded we just wanted it back. Of course innocent people are going to die and this is always the sad side of fighting but the IRA gave better than what we got and I'm happy they did. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the IRA."

5 Ku Klux Klan The Ku Klux Klan (also known as the KKK) is a secret hate group formed in 1866 and is located in the United States of America. The group is notorious for their political ideologies, which include white supremacy, white nationalism, anti-immigration, anti-communism, Christian terrorism, Anti-Catholicism, more.

American is number one terrorist

The Ku Klux Klan is the name of three distinct past and present movements in the United States that have advocated extremist reactionary currents such as white supremacy, white nationalism, and anti-immigration, historically expressed through terrorism aimed at groups or individuals whom they opposed. All three movements have called for the "purification" of American society, and all are considered right wing extremist organizations. Founded by conservative democrats (back when the Democratic Party was conservative), these bigots with condoms on their heads used to be very powerful in the 1920s, but now have some chapters left but overall are just a group that has little followers and don't pose much of a threat, besides a few murders and bombings here and there.

America has always been that one country who is willing to commit unresolvable war, due to their powerful militia and the firepower they are capable of. Despite that, people overshadow the true social issues in the United States such as racial segregation and discrimination which torments the image of the most powerful country in the world. The KKK, or Ku Klux Klan is one of those groups who are by far terrorists who have a special motive to screw a diverse society with an Anti-Sentimental background against the African Americans, Native Indians and especially people of Jewish and Muslim origin. This is by far the biggest terrorist organisation still continuing to tarnish society and will still keep it that way.

They hate, black people, Jews, Mexicans, immigrants, homosexuality etc. Sometimes they kill them too.

6 Hezbollah

Hezbollah is Lebanese group who defend their own country and lands

Freedom fighter you have to be an idiot to call them a terrorist group

Israel and america experts say " there by far the greatest guerrilla group in the world"

They are terrorist as by far truth is concern. I mean, who digs tunnel under the border of a sovereign nation, for the purpose of causing harm to its innocent citizens? TERRORIST!

I'm asking because you are complaining, And what did the enemy did to the Civilians of Lebanon then? - PlayStationSolar

7 Liberation Tiger of Tamil Eelam

The deadliest terrorist group of Srilanka, LTTE was founded by Velupillai Prabhakaran in May 1976, possessing a sophisticated military. However, it was defeated in May 2009 by Srilankan Military but it has a devilish record of assassinating high-profile Indian and Srilankan politicians. Banned by 32 countries across the world, this terrorist group was the main reason behind the Srilankan Civil War

They had submarines, battleships, and war planes

Weren't strong enough as the Sri Lankan army.

I am proud I was a member of Tamil Tigers, Tamil Tigers original freedom fighters not religious fighters, Tamil youths forced to take weapons only after thousands of Tamils killed and burned alive and their properties destroyed and realised one and only solution for Tamil is fighting for our separate land, no member of Tamil Tiger can harm public if they do so punishment for that will be terrible, who kill civilians when you compare with srilankan forces what tigers did was nothing, more than hundred thousands of Tamil civilians killed and thousands of our women rapped by government forces no one talk about that we killed Indian prime minister because of Indian troops he sent to srilanka killed and rapped thousands one women rapped by Indian army carried out attack on Rajeev Kandi ( Indian prime minister ) no one can even get close to Tamil Tiger's leader and Tamil's one and only leader Hon. Pirapaharan' s art of leadership and kindness we were defeated we cause we are the minority ...more

8 Boko Haram

They are much less popular due to how news has chosen to portray events across the globe however I believe more people should recognize how much Boko Haram has done, in addition to ISIS. In fact, Boko Haram has killed more people than ISIS has. But why don't more people know about this group, we may ask ourselves. Humans have become so self absorbed and selfish. The news only reports on what is most important to us and what has affected us before (ISIS) instead of reporting all news without opinions like they should be.

It's as if they have no knowledge about Islam. They are called 'Extremists', but an extremist Muslim follows everything in Islam. Islam strictly forbids violence, so how can they be called Muslims? They made young girls convert forcibly. In the peaceful religion of Muslims, you cannot force anyone to do anything religious. It's very sad. almost all Muslims believe in peace... but with these terrorist groups people think wrong about Islam.

Violent Nigerian terrorist group of extremist Muslims, causing violence and instability in the region, going so far as to plunge the West African state of Nigeria into civil war.

They didn't plunge Nigeria into civil war they can't but they've done damage to a few northern states

9 Hamas

Hamas is not a terrorist group, you fools!

Hamas is not a terrorist organization

They are some of the most well armed groups active today

"Terrorism=the use of violence and intimidation for the pursuit of political aims"-taken from webster's dictionary. What do you call him using his citizens as literal human shields? He is not protecting his people, he is using them as propaganda against Israel. He is the literal definition of a terrorist organization, you fools! HAMAS is using intimidation to force their citizens into the line of Israeli fire, so when violence is created by the deaths of their citizens, he can reach his political goal of conquering Israel through the propaganda created by the deaths of HAMAS's citizens. Hamas is a terrorist organization

10 Al-shabaab

Catch em if you can? What are they Pokemon

They spread nothing but hatred!

I always wanted to contrast the Somali Pirates and the Al Shabaab organisation due to their different range of motives they have which is nihilism.

I just hate this guys please catch them if you can

The Contenders

11 Lashkar-E-Taiba

Responsible for 2008 Mumbai Attacks and other numerous attacks in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir.

Dangerous organisation which can spread jihad in south east Asia

This should be in the top 5. They've killed more people, attacked more people, and supported more terror attacks than a lot of groups in the top 10.

They are based in pakistan heaven of terrorists

12 Bodu Bala Sena

They're cruel & evil! Totally baseless for what they're fighting for. Organized by shallow minded government of Sri Lanka (wherein their racist & foolish president might also have contribution towards this) as well as the shameful monks who in hell does no longer look respective but, looks like devil with their orange outfit.
They're free to bad talk, hurt/kill other minorities especially Muslim in Sri Lanka & burn their properties yet they remain free, untouched, living in luxury life as they are financed by the state. Shame! They are coward, uncultured, dumb, boastful and everything that's evil!

I am a Sri Lankan and have never heard anyone speaking so extreme hate speech so openly like the Bodu Bala sena. They have been a reason for hundreds of attacks on Muslim interests and inciting hatred on a daily basis. This organisation and it's supporters should be banned internationally, very urgently.

The extremist group after LTTE, which is promoting religious hatred and destroying religious harmony. They have a record of attacking minorities worship places and inciting general public to harm minorities. In the recent past they have attacked Muslims houses and killed innocent people with the support of police force and STF. It is evident and proved the the present government is supporting this terror organisation for political gains. The president, Mahinda rajapaksha has not taken any action against this group as it is backed by his beloved brother, Gotabaya Rajapaksha. The intention of this terror organisation is to protect the present government by hook or by crook to keep the government in power ahead. In the name of Buddhism
They have performed atrocities on Muslims and Christian minorities. The secretary of BBS leader Gnanasara seems to be a lunatic, changing topics according to situations. Necessary action must be taken against this group to sustain peace and harmony ...more

They suck big time, they are easily accepted among the majorities as majority of the Budhists are fools and illiterate! Sri Lanka is just after a 30 year war, they want another war in the country sending the county back to Stone Age, the reason is purely jealousy, greed, hate to see people from other faiths flourish in business, social lives and literacy etc etc, inefficiency to execute any anything proper that will bring about change towards goodness! Basically lazy bafoons who wants to come into politics by creating hatred amongst 70% majority Buddhist majority against 10% Muslim minority! Completely backed by Goverment of SL! Basically devise and rule strategy! They are stirring up lazy budhist youths to take arms, destroy Muslim houses and business, Rob, loot, steal them in public and private, destroy their peace, create chaos! And all these things they do it openly, they stage huge meetings with the help of the police and Forces! Stirring and Whining the audience at the meeting, ...more

13 Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan

There are peoples from raw India who want to finish Pakistan in Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan and want to finish Pakistan atomic power

Pakistani military and government have moral and financial support to these terrorist groups for their own purposes. Tehrik-i-Talban is made by Pakistani Military for terrorist activity in neighbor countries like Afghanistan, India, Kashmir even in their own country to take unfair advantages and makes their favorite government and rule the country as they want.

No doubt India is pumping their backs. But we are slowly getting rid from them.

Creation of foreign intelligence agencies for destabilizing Pakistan. They have nothing to do with Islam. They just use it as a cover for their actions.

14 Anonymous

Obviously everyone here saying how bad Anonymous is are Normies who been brainwashed by the news and hasn't gone on any of the boards on 4chan except /b/ and /pol/

Anonymous has always been a cyber terrorist organisation. Just because they are responsible for heroic acts like exposing government corruption, digital oppression and especially revealing dirty secrets from a some specific corporation, still means they torment the rest of the Internet both physically and digitally. I do not adhere them or accredit them because they are making the way we surf dangerous and risky.

We are legion, we do not forgive, we do not forget.

Expect us...

They are rebels who help common people like us by exposing the government

15 Sri Lanka Thawheed Jama'ath

Fake this is not a terrorist group fools. I feel sorry for the one who added this here. Consult a good doctor first.

This is not a terrerist group but became number one in blood donation in Sri Lanka

I agree with this explanation... Normally Shia Muslims is best peace loving Muslims and Wahhabi the worst.. I ask government to ban all Sunni radical groups,

Very dangerous terrorist group. More scary than Al Qieda or LTTE as this group work on to a hidden agenda unlike other groups.

16 Westboro Baptist Church

Spread terrorism through words

They're just loud-mouthed hate-mongers. Not terrorists.

They sound like a bunch of fine young homosexual men.

Idiots yes but not terrorists

17 Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA)

The Armenian Secret Army for the Liberation of Armenia (ASALA) was an Armenian Marxist-Leninis militant organization, that operated from 1975 to early 1990s. N It is considered a terrorist organization by some sources, other sources describe it as guerrilla and armed organization. 46 people were killed and 299 injured as a result of ASALA attacks and assassinations between 1975 to early 1990s

This armenian guy is a retard ASALA destroyed itself yet they never ever "brought turks on their knees" they only massacred 46 civilian and injured 299 of them they didn't even have an ass to fight against Turkish Army,Turkish police took care of them and they are gone forever

America is real terrorist.

They are heroes

18 Muslim Brotherhood

The Mother of Islamic Terrorism.

He is the warriors of Islam

Should be in the top 5 groups.

Top problem

19 Kurdistan Workers' Party

PKK is the worst terror organisation on earth- their methods have inspired Al Qaeda and IS but because they largely target Turkish nationals, the EU and US have turned a blind eye on them for decades. I note that the US renamed this deadly terror organisation when they invaded the Middle East. Now this terror organisation serve the US army and western oil companies in Iraq and Syria.

Kurdish racist group, They are killing people on roads without reason. They are killing you if you hold Turkish Id and bargaining drugs and weapons between Middle East and Europe. They are kidnapping the normal Kurdish families youngsters and brain washing against the Turkish government and capitalism but they are working for capitalism such a mindless move.

This is definitely must be in top 10, they are kills Turkey's soldiers

They are killing Turkish soldiers with ambush. They can't fight as soldiers. - TheKong

They are killing people more than 40.000 just in 20 years (1984-2014)

20 Naxalite

These groups are interrupt by the Indian growth.

They are like termites eating India.

The most filthy groups which is prevailing in India to destroy the culture and heritage of India

Dangerous to the society.

21 OLF

This is really the most forceful and the most cruel group ever. they fight for freedom of oromia region in Ethiopia. their fighting is against the dictatorship rule of Ethiopian government.

A freedom fighter not a terrorist.

I love them and what they are doing

OLF is fighting for the freedom of the largest ethnic group. The Oromos are under (the Amharas & Tigreans) colony for the past hundered years

22 Palestine Liberation Organization

YEs terrorists biggest.

23 Sri Lanka Muslim Congress

These guys are main supporters for Islamic fundamentalism in Sri Lanka.

A Political party working under Sri Lankan government

It's a government supported political party that's all.

The guys who voted are racists.

24 Moro National Liberation Front

They are cowards..pretending to be a courageous warrior but used a civilian as their shield when the philippine forces arrived..they are one of the reason why the progress was so slow in mindanao

They were seeking independence from the Philippines led by Nur Misauri in mid-2013 but failed, the leader fled to the Philippines.

MNLF aren't extremists or Islamic militants, they are Moro nationalists who want to separate from the Philippines and create their own nationalistic country.


25 Houthis

Never heard of this,

They are cold blooded

Iran funded terror organization

They are not terrorist lol... The author of thetopten is totally lunatic... I feel like laughing at this page...
Houthis are innocent peoples of Yemen living a very difficult life, They are poor but very loyal and hard worker... The mother of all terrorism is Saudi Arabia who attacked on innocent people of Yemen and demolish their homeland... Now a days Houthis stand against Saudi's Terrorist activity then you are saying Houthis are terrorist... Where were you die when Saudi's attacked and killed thousands of people including children? Destroy their homeland, destabilize their country...
Oh I forget Saudi's best friend America put Houthis in the list... There are three devils in the world
1. Al-e-Saud
2. Israel
3. America


Uh, why isn't this group already here?!?!?!

BADdD people please s†øp †Hem

27 Bangladesh Awami League

Worst terror group in whole Bangladesh who ironically runs the country. There is no such crime that so called student league hasn't done. They are by far the worst of the worst. Kills people in public with machetes and police won't even say anything because police is owned by Awami League.

AL and it's student wing BSL are the biggest terrorist. They have no sense of patriotism and only follows the orders of Indian Secret Agency RAW.

Most dangerous terrorist party

BAL should be in top ten list.

29 Bangladesh Islami Chhatra Shibir

Related with the violence and deadly activities in Bangladesh

Why are they in the list, all they do is protect themselves from evil chatra league, they don't even smoke or take alcohol. They don't deserve this list.

Believe me they deserve the first position

30 New People's Army

Communistic terrorists are parasites, and their communist ideology is a delusion.

These are communist groups in the Philippines, their goal is to destroy the Democracy in the Philippines and change it into communism. They lure in mountains and scare people

They have spread Terrorism in the Philippines for almost a half Century! While their Leader/Co-Founder is living a Rich life in Netherlands

The only thing they deserve is a free helicopter ride from gen. Augusto Pinochet.

31 Irgun

Terrorist Fascist group supported by Hitler

Obviously history and real facts don't really count and people would rather comment based on their own ignorance. Jordon was the occupying force in Palestine, not Palestinians. The Irgun targeted British and yes they killed and yes they were freedom fighters / terrorists depending on your point of view.

Lets not forget the PLO (missing here) started attacking Israel in '64 three years before Israel routed and took over control of the West Bank form Jordan. That's 3 years before the Israeli 'occupation'!

But I guess facts and history don't count for anything here.

I have read about them and inspired by them. I think Tamil tigers have been inspired by them
