Think of one terrorist attack that has occurred in recent history. Can you identify the ideology of the terrorists in that case?
One of the recent terrorist attacks was the pre-Christmas attack in Berlin (Germany) on 19thDecember 2016. In this attack, 12 people lost their lives after a truck plowed into a busy Christmas market in Berlin. The attacker was later shot dead in Italy and was believed to have been part of a terrorist group called Islamist State (IS). Islamist State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) or commonly called as IS, is a unrecognized state and militant group that follows hard-line, Wahabi philosophy of Sunni sects of Islam religion. Originally formed in 1999, this group was primarily active in Iraq and in 2014 declared itself as a Caliphate (and hence Islamic State). Be declaring itself Caliphate- an ancient reference to historical Caliphate in Islam, it claims moral and political authority over all Muslims worldwide.
