UN trolled for seeking Gurmeet Ram Rahim, Honeypreet Insaan's support for World Toilet Day

An official Twitter handle of United Nations on Wednesday got trolled soon after it posted a tweet seeking support for World Toilet Day. Those tagged in the tweet by @UN_Water, the official Twitter handle of United Nations Water, the wing which coordinates the UN's work on water and sanitation, were Honeypreet Insan and Gurmeet Ram Rahim.

Notably, self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh has been put behind bars for 20 years after he was convicted in a rape case. His 'adopted daughter', Honeypreet Insan, was also arrested on Tuesday by the Haryana Police in connection with the violence that took place after the Dera Sacha Sauda chief was convicted in the rape case on August 25. She had been evading arrest for over a month.

Soon after the tweet by the UN, Twitter chuckled at the irony of the situation calling it the 'biggest joke of the day'.
 

In 2013, the United Nations General Assembly had officially designated November 19 as World Toilet Day. It is coordinated by UN-Water in collaboration with governments and partners.
