Is it because they understand well the teachings of their religion and wants other people to have the same belief or the other way around, they know very little of the true essence of their religion? Fanatics are uninformed. What do you think?

Little knowledge is very dangerous, that is the reasons behind the fanatics. No knowledgeable person can become a fanatic.
