Like title says, does every religion have terrorism, an extremist group? Like Christianity KKK, Islam ISIS, Judaism Zionism. Let's not forget about Game of Thrones and the Sons of the Harpy... lol
Does every religion have terrorism?

Well, maybe not Jainism.0
You forgot the Buddhist terrorists who kill Muslims in Asia. But atheism also has terrorists.2
Because religion is used to justify terrible actions and beliefs. Thats why religion is the worst thing to happen to the world. If it disappeared the world would be a better place. Fuck religion and religious people who try to shove it down your throat.0
Yea. Every country and religion has got a story of fucked up things they've done tbh. People are just messed up sometimes, from day one til now.1

Sort of... but "extremist" is sort of a misnomer term.
For example the definition of an extremist is someone that takes their belief seriously and takes action with it. A Christian by definition is a follower of Christ to be like him. A True Christian extremist would be one that is like Christ and protecting human values that wouldn't objectively exist to begin with without Christianity. I. e. the equal human dignity of every human person and the value of life etc.
However... there are a minority, Christianity is a religion of 2.7 billlion people and with the relatively rare amount of "terrorists" within it as the biggest is the KKK which is often looked as a joke and not taken seriously within Christianity at 10,000 members... thats less than 0.03% of the religion.
But yes every individual has the potential to be terrorists because people are imperfect and sinners. But with atheism, there are occasional terrorist individuals but rather than a large group of people. Atheist terror groups tend to happen with whole societies generally. I. e in The atheist soviet union, north korea, in many ways china (which holds the majority of the worlds atheists although reducing). But all people are capable of evil1
Terrorists more often than not are an aggressive vocal minority who use violence to corrupt ideals of nationalism, religion etc.1
Any religion can be perverted and used as an excuse/justification for terroristic behavior. Some religions have that occur much more often than others and, obviously, Islam is what has been hijacked and used as an excuse most recently.0
Probably most but I don't think there can be terrorism in Jainism.. Some Jains cover their mouths or sweep a path to avoid killing smaller creatures. An extremist Jain would be so peaceful to the point of being afraid to get out of bed in the morning. Might kill some peaceful bacteria with every step! :D0
Yes every religion has there extremist even atheism.1
