Sajad Gharibi is an Iranian weight lifter who has been taking the internet by storm. He is said to weigh over 24 stones of nearly most of that is muscle! This giant of a man has a following of over 162,000 followers on Instagram where he posts about what he does best – weightlifting. Bur recently some of his posts have really caught the eye and it seems he now wants to join the fight against ISIS!
BBC Persia reported that he said he wants to, “beat up ISIS.”
Since ISIS’ rise, combatants have destroyed dozens of historic, culturally significant religious sites throughout Iraq and Syria, many of them Shiite. UNESCO director general Irina Bokova has called this systematic destruction an act of “cultural cleansing,” meant to erase cultural identities that do not correspond with ISIS’ ideology.
Gharibi’s desire to aid in the Iranian fight against ISIS comes after around two years of the Islamic Republic’s intervention in the embattled region.
Despite pledging his loyalty to the Assad regime on Instagram, Gharibi denied assertions that he is actually an infamous ISIS executioner, known as the “Bulldozer,” who as his name conveys has a similar body type and was captured by Syrian troops this June.
No word on when Gharibi will actually head to Syria. If his Instagram is any indicator, it may be soon — on Tuesday he posted several photos of himself in army fatigues:
Here are some more images of his incredible physique:
