Iranian hermit Amu Haji, recognized as Iran's dirtiest man, has died a few months after taking his first shower in decades. The British edition of The Guardian writes about this, citing local media.

According to journalists, the hermit Amu Haji died at the age of 94.

A resident of Iran who has not taken a shower for the past 60 years , was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the dirtiest person in the Republic. Amu Haji, as the newspaper notes, died in the village of Deygah in the southern province of Fars on Sunday, October 24.

“The soot-covered hermit living in a cinder block hut hasn’t washed with soap and water for over 60 years. Villagers said he experienced emotional trauma in his youth that forced him to stop showering. In 2014, the Tehran Times wrote that Amu Haji ate animals killed on the roads, smoked a pipe filled with animal excrement, and believed that cleanliness would make him sick,” the Guardian writes.

A few months ago, residents of an Iranian village, according to journalists, persuaded Amu Haji to take a shower for the first time in 60 years. After the hermit's death, the title of Iran's dirtiest man could go to Kailash Singh, who hasn't washed for at least three decades. The man explained his position by saying that refusing to shower would help “solve all the problems facing the Iranian nation.”

“Every evening, when the villagers gather, Kailash kindles a fire, smokes marijuana and, kneeling, prays to God Shiva,” local media wrote about the hermit, who, like Amu Haji, refused to take a shower.
