Amou Haji Biography
Amou Haji (1928–2022), or “Uncle Haji”, was an Iranian man who was well-known for being “the world’s dirtiest man.”
Amou Haji was not his real name, but an endearing nickname given to elderly people.
Haji lived between a makeshift shack and a hole in the ground in the village of Kahrar-e Dejgah, Fars.
Due to his fear of soap and water, did not bathe in over 50 years, but was pressured into doing so in late 2022, shortly before his death. He died on October 23, 2022, in Kahrar-e Dejgah.
Amou Haji was the subject of a 2013 documentary titled The Strange Life of Amou Haji.
Amou Haji, an Iranian man known as “the dirtiest man in the world” for going decades without taking a shower, died on Tuesday, according to the official media. He was 94 years old. His demise was reported.
Haji passed away on Sunday in the hamlet of Dejgah in the southern province of Fars, according to the IRNA news agency.
Haji was a bachelor who had not bathed in over 50 years before he passed away.
The agency cited a local official as saying that Haji had put off having a shower out of concern that she may “get unwell.”
But, according to the IRNA report, “the first time that villagers had taken him to a bathroom to wash was a few months ago.”
Iranian media outlets claim that a short documentary about Amou Haji’s life called “The Strange Life of Amou Haji” was shot in 2013.
Haji has reportedly been known to eat roadkill, smoke a pipe filled with animal waste, and think that cleanliness would make him sick, according to a 2014 piece that appeared in the Tehran Times. Photographs showed that he was puffing on many cigarettes at once.
Irna claimed that the locals had finally persuaded him to wash for the first time in his life a few months prior.
The unofficial record may be given to another Indian man who lived the majority of his life without ever having a bath once Haji dies.
A guy named Kailash “Kalau” Singh, who was from a hamlet outside of Varanasi, was allegedly accused by The Hindustan Times of going more than 30 years without taking a shower in an effort to help with “all the problems affecting the nation.”
He preferred the customary bathing in water to what he called a “fire bath.” The article claims that Kalau “builds a campfire, smokes marijuana, and stands on a leg praying to Lord Shiva every evening as the locals gather.”
There were pictures of the ascetic sitting in the muck, and he was covered in dirt on his skin and clothes.
He reportedly drank five liters of water daily that he collected from puddles in an old rusted pail and subsisted on roadkill, his favorite food being rotten porcupine meat. This was a recurring theme in the myth that surrounded him.
He has up until recently retained a robust constitution despite the unusual ways he conducts his life.
There were allegations that he had been examined by a Tehran-based medical team earlier this year, who concluded that he was in good health.
