Amou Haji, or as people like to call him: The dirtiest man in the world is the first person in our history who hasn’t bathed in 60 years. It’s a hell of a long time! Definitely, Hadji could win the Guinness World Record if given the opportunity. I can assume that the main question you would like to ask this man is “Why doesn’t he bathe?”
Amou Haji lives in isolation in the village of Dejga, in the southern Iranian province of Fars. The reason why he has not bathed for 60 years is amazing. An 80-year-old man believes that cleanliness will bring him illness. Haji can’t even stand contact with water — and talking about the fact that he should swim makes him very angry. The result — the dirtiest man in the world is now the color of the Earth! It’s amazing to see people committed to simple and natural living.
Amou’s entire lifestyle fits his nickname perfectly. An old man cannot even dream of fresh food or clean water. Instead, he eats rotten porcupine meat and drinks water from a rusty can. He drinks more than 5 liters of water a day. More disgustingly, instead of smoking tobacco, he fills his smoking pipe with animal excrement. What about the haircut? Amou prefers to burn her hair instead of cutting it. He also wears an old military helmet to keep his head warm. Hadji has no home. It lives in a hole dug in the ground. Here he is, the dirtiest man in the world.
The villagers who built the shack for him say that Amou suffered severe emotional trauma in his youth. Perhaps this is the reason for his strange behavior.
