Self-styled godman Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, who is now behind the bars for raping two of his followers, and his controversial adopted daughter Honeypreet, who was held yesterday after evading the arrest for 38 days, continue to grab the headlines. 

However, this time, the reason is a bit different. In an unexpected tweet on Wednesday, the United Nations tagged the duo to join them in their campaign on ‘World Toilet Day’ on November 19. 

Twitterati were left scratching their heads after the official account of UN Water – a United Nations arm – tweeted to Ram Rahim and Honeypreet, inviting the two to join their campaign on World Toilet Day. 

The tweet posted by the UN-Water account on Wednesday read: “Dear @insan_honey, we hope you & @Gurmeetramrahim will lend your voice and support #WorldToiletDay (sic)”.

The UN body, called 'United Nations Water' (@UN_Water), says it 'coordinates the UN's work on water and sanitation for a better world.'

While the tweet was deleted later in the day, Twitterati did not miss the chance to take a screenshot of the tweet, which invited the rape-convict Dera chief and his controversial daughter, both behind bars. 

This is not the first time that the UN body had talked about the controversial duo. In another tweet on Tuesday, it said, “Dear @Gurmeetramrahim, can we count on your support to celebrate toilets on November 19 - #WorldToiletDay?”

Questions are being raised whether the United Nations is unaware of the of the status of people they invite for their campaigns.
