The global emergence of several Islamic militant groups and their ability to forge close ties to one another is posing a major security threat to global peace. The followers or anyone who indeed submit to the will of Allah (God) as required by Islam are known as Muslims, and the demographic information on this religion shows there are 1.2 billion Muslims. It is the second largest religion in the world with four countries in Asia mostly populated with its teachings and practices. Indonesia is inhabited with one hundred and sixty million (160 m), Pakistan with one hundred and forty million (140 m), Bangladesh and India with one hundred twenty to one hundred thirty millions (120-130 m) each . Given the size and scope of Islam and its obvious turbulence among many Muslims, the following questions come into focus: What is the meaning of militancy? And what is Islam? This chapter will review some literature written on the rise of Islamic militancy.
