Al Mukhtar bin Abi Ubaid Athuqafy, a person who claimed many things among which was that he received revelation. he called to the avenging of Hussain's killing so that he could take advantage and get to power. he is the liar whom the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) mentioned:

فِي ثَقِيفٍ كَذَّابٌ وَمُبِيرٌ

In Thaqif there will be a great liar (Al Mukhtar) and destroyer (Al Hajjaj)
