The most controversial rape convict, self-made God man Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh and his ‘daughter’ Honey preet Insan who have been the center of attention for quite a long time have been tagged in a post by United Nations on October 3, 2017.
In a tweet, the official Twitter handle of UN-Water wrote:
However, the tweet was deleted on the same day.
The tweet was posted merely a day after Honeypreet was arrested by Haryana police on Tuesday after a month-long chase.
After 38 days of being missing, the Haryana police on Tuesday got hold of Honeypreet in Patiala – Zirakpur highway.
Some speculated that the person behind the UN handle might be a supporter of the ‘baba’; meanwhile many Tweeter users suggested that it was some sort of a joke. Twitter users also questioned how the UN could be so heedless about the man-hunt being held and raised doubts about the body’s status of people they invite for their campaigns. Here are some of the reactions from the cyberspace:
World Toilet Day, which falls on November 19, is about ‘Taking action to reach the 2.4 billion people living without a toilet’. The theme of World Toilet Day 2016 was ‘toilets and jobs’, focusing on how sanitation, or the lack of it, can impact people’s livelihoods, states the official website of the United Nations.
The theme of this year’s World Toilet Day is ‘Waste Water’ which will focus on the Sustainable Development Goals which aim to reach everyone with sanitation, and halve the proportion of untreated wastewater and increase recycling and safe reuse by 2030.
For that to be achieved, we need everyone’s poo to be contained, transported, treated and disposed of in a safe and sustainable way. Today, for billions of people around the world, sanitation systems are either non-existent or ineffective. Human waste gets out and killer diseases spread, meaning progress in health and child survival is seriously undermined, states World Toilet Day official website.
The official website has also added that If there’s one thing that unites humanity, it’s the call of nature. But depending on where we live, it’s not always possible to dispose of our bodily waste safely and responsibly.
To achieve SDG 6, we need everyone’s poo to take a 4-step journey:
- Containment. Poo must be deposited into a hygienic toilet and stored in a sealed pit or tank, separated from human contact.
- Transport.Pipes or latrine emptying services must move the poo to the treatment stage.
- Treatment.Poo must be processed into treated wastewater and waste products that can be safely returned to the environment.
- Disposal or reuse.Safely treated poo can be used for energy generation or as fertilizer in food production.
