Terrorism is a term used in its broadest sense to describe the use of intentionally indiscriminate violence as a means to create terror or fear, in order to achieve a political, religious or ideological aim. It is used in this regard primarily to refer to violence against civilians or non-combatants.

The term has often been used politically as a term of abuse or denunciation, both by non-state groups and by governments against each other. There is no universally agreed upon definition of the term, and many definitions exist.
