Today most countries of the world are battling terrorism. Somewhere Islamic terrorism, and elsewhere communist groups terror. Apart from these, there are many regional and separatist groups, who want to get their demand through violence. Even though the word terrorism itself is terror, yet there are some organizations/groups which are at the top in terms of terror and inhumanity. We are telling you about 10 such terrorist organizations which are most dangerous in the world:

Al Qaeda is the big name in terrorism, but the Islamic State has become a devil. This organization is also known as ISIS. This terrorist organization has captured northern Iraq and western Syria and formed its government there. This organization, is formed by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, was so barbaric and violent that even Al Qaeda condemned it. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, died during a military operation by US Military. This terrorist organization consists of fighters from all over the world, the largest number of British Muslims.
This organization was formed in 1994 under the leadership of Mullah Mohammad Omar. The sole purpose of this terrorist organization was to get Islamic law enacted throughout Afghanistan. This organization was successful to a large extent in this, but the American troops completely destroyed this organization. However, this organization is again trying its hand to grow in Afghanistan.
