Military, as is common knowledge, is a term used to denote the armed forces of a country. It is an organization that is extensively trained to defend the frontiers of a state using high-scale and sophisticated weaponry.

Militia on the other hand, is used to refer to civilian organizations or communities who are called upon in times of emergency to provide various services such as defense, paramilitary, or simply law enforcement. They are not employed on a regular scale but used only on an as-needed basis.
