Who was Amou Haji? ‘World’s dirtiest man’ Dead at 94

State media said that an Iranian hermit who had been informally called the “world’s dirtiest man” after going 60 years without a shower, had away at the age of 94.

According to reports, Amou Haji, an affectionate moniker for elderly people that is not his real name, passed away on Sunday in the village of Dejgah.

Haji didn’t wash because he thought soap and water would make him sick; he was notorious for his grime-covered skin and matted hair. He spent the majority of his life alone in an open brick home that the locals built for him after he stopped sleeping in a hole in the ground.

Haji’s unusual behaviour was attributed by the locals to “emotional setbacks” in his youth. The Tehran Times stated in 2014 that Haji allegedly smoked a pipe made out of animal excrement and shunned fresh meals in favour of rotten porcupine.

The Daily Mail reports that the 2013 short documentary “The Strange Life of Amou Haji” was based on Haji’s life.

In the end, it’s probable that some of Haji’s worries were justified. According to village officials, “villagers had taken him to a bathroom to wash” just a few months prior to his passing. If the cleaning endeavour was successful is unknown.

The title of “world’s dirtiest guy” is now open for grabs following Haji’s passing.The Guardian suggested that Kailash “Kalau” Singh, an Indian who, as of 2009, had not taken a shower in more than 30 years, might be a front-runner for the peculiar award.

Years ago, Singh claimed that his lack of hygiene was an effort to alleviate “all the challenges affecting the nation” in an interview with the Hindustan Times. The 63-year-old man, who was the father of 7 daughters, was allegedly abstaining from cleaning in order to conceive a male, according to his neighbours.
