Abstract

Malaysia is one of earlier nations in Southeast Asia which concerned with radical and terrorist group. There are at least thirteen militant groups identified by the Malaysian Home Ministry as having planned and or attempted a violent takeover of the country’s administration. Significant radicalism emerged in Malaysia in 1970s. Some of these groups have tried to stir up trouble related to ethnic relationships in Malaysia, and some have been involved in terrorist activities. This paper attempts to highlight the origins and the foundation of these groups and their relationships with contemporary radical ideology.
