Amou Haji; “The World’s Dirtiest Man” Passes Away At The Age Of 94
According to reports, “Amou Haji,” who went 50 years without taking a bath, smoked a pipe filled with animal waste and consumed roadkill.
According to official media, an Iranian hermit dubbed the “world’s dirtiest man” after going more than 50 years without taking a shower has passed away at the ripe old age of 94.
The old man called “Amou Haji” by his friends died on Sunday in the village of Dejgah in the province of Fars in the south of Iran, according to the Irna news agency.
Local media claimed that Haji, who was covered in soot and lived in a cinder-block shanty, hadn’t taken a bath with water or soap in more than 60 years. He refused to wash because of “emotional hurdles in his youth,” according to the villagers.
The Tehran Times stated in 2014 that Haji would consume roadkill, puff on an animal excrement-filled pipe, and felt that cleanliness would make him ill. He was captured on camera puffing on multiple cigarettes.
Irna stated that a few months prior, villagers had finally convinced him to wash.
The unofficial record may be passed to an Indian man who had not taken a bath for a large portion of his life after Haji passed away.
In an effort to help solve “all the problems affecting the nation,” Kailash “Kalau” Singh, from a town outside of Varanasi, was reported to have skipped washing for more than 30 years in 2009 by the Hindustan Times.
He would choose what he dubbed a “fire bath” instead of water. The newspaper reported that Kalau “sets a campfire, smokes marijuana, and stands on a leg praying to Lord Shiva every evening as the locals gather.”
It’s just like taking a bath with water, Singh reportedly added. All the bacteria and illnesses in the body are destroyed by a fire bath.
