    It's a feeling that is guterral and requires a sense of passion and intensity.  It's beyond disliking because of the amount of intensity in the emotion.  It's not superficial either, meaning when you are experiencing it (not just saying it), the feeling has a fullness to it.  It can be destructive because of the amount of intensity involved.

    Is it ever justified?  Well that's a judgment on whether it's right or wrong to have such feelings.  The answer is YES, of course it is okay, Otherwise it's an invalidation of what someone is feeling.  Whether you like it or not is the judgment of justification.

    Hatred (or hate) is a deep and emotional extreme dislike that can be directed against individuals, entities, objects, or ideas. It is not the opposite to love unless you love to hate.

    Keep an eye on hatred as hatred starts wars.

    You have this feeling inside you that you can't stand the sight/sound of someone - you can't be in the same room.
    Then again there's animosity and there's loathing. Animosity is more violent dislike, loathing can stem from fear. Blind hatred is usually animosity, whereas loathing is the secretive version, cold, calculating. You don't let the subject of your hatred know they're 'in the firing line', whereas with animosity they're only too aware and any wtinesses are likely to point at you if anything untoward happens.
    It's like the difference between manslaughter and murder.

    Hate means dont like a particular person. It may happen due to the bad behaviour of the person towards us.
