However, the UN realised the gaffe after being trolled and took down the puzzling tweet.
Meanwhile, both Ram Rahim and Honeypreet are in jail. While Honeypreet was taken into custody on charges of sedition on Tuesday, Ram Rahim was sentenced to 20 years in prison on August 29 for raping two of his sadhvis in 2002.
