Behāfarīd (Middle Persian: Weh-āfrīd, Persian: بهآفرید, also spelled Bihāfarīd) was an 8th-century Persian Zoroastrian heresiarch who started a religious peasant revolt with elements from Zoroastrianism and Islam. His revolt was quelled by the Abbasid general Abu Muslim, and he was executed by hanging. Some of his followers joined the Ustadh Sis movement.
