The motives for the occurrence of criminal acts of terrorism do not stand alone but are multimotivated, such as injustice, poverty, ignorance and the ease of getting information from virtual media so that certain individuals or groups are affected by the ideas of radicalism and terrorism which are widely spread in various media. In addition, there are several terrorist groups that carry out their actions on the basis of carrying out certain religious orders. Terrorists generally refer to themselves as separatists, liberation fighters, crusaders, militants, mujahideen, and other terms in accordance with their religion.
