Mujahideen is the plural form of mujahid, the term for one engaged in Jihad. In English usage, it refers to guerrilla type military outfits of radical Islamists, specifically in reference to the Taliban in their role as guerrilla force in the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Since the phenomenon of radical Islamic irregular forces becoming more widespread in the wake of the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan, the alternative term "jihadist" has also gained popularity.
