Sultan Bashiruddin Mahmood (or Sultan Bashir-ud-Din Mehmood), (Urdu: سلطان بشیر الدین محمود), (born 1938) (SI), is a Pakistani nuclear engineer and Islamic scholar educated in Lahore, Pakistan and Manchester, United Kingdom. A controversial figure, Bashiruddin Mahmood is widely popular in Pakistan's scientific and religious circles. Mahmood, as an engineer, is an experienced atomic scientist and engineer who has largely contributed in the formative years of Pakistan's nuclear industry.

Mahmood is well known for his contacts and sympathies for Taliban which resulted in ending his engineering career. Mahmood is also a Islamic scholar, having written more than 15 books on the relationship between Islam and science.
