Redirecting HTTP to HTTPS in Magento 2 for Bitnami AWS Stack

Recently while setting up a Magento 2 store on AWS using Bitnami's Magento Stack I ran into the problem of HTTPS redirection, while visiting the site with http:// it wouldn't redirect to the https:// version, even after searching for solutions on official docs, nothing worked, however I found a simple solution that did the trick.
