We propose a new mechanism to explain the magnetic structure of a recently discovered magnetoresistive double perovskite oxide system, $Sr_{2}FeMoO_{6}$, with the help of detailed experimental and theoretical results. This model, based on a strong antiferromagnetic coupling between the local moment and the charge carriers arising from local hopping interactions, can give rise to ferromagnetic metallic as well as ferromagnetic insulating ground states. The relevance of this mechanism in understanding the magnetism in dilute magnetic semiconductors such as $Ga_{1-x}Mn_{x}$ As, is also discussed.
