India To UK: We Want Our Koh-i-Noor Diamond Back

India and the UK have recently made headlines with India demanding that Britain return the Koh-i-Noor Diamond. It’s not all that new. Over the years, India has made the same request over and over to have the 105-carat diamond returned.

Back in 1850, it was presented to Queen Victoria as a gift. Today, it’s protected in the confines of the Tower of London alongside all of the other Crown Jewels.

But India’s Solicitor General told the nation’s Supreme Court that his nation shouldn’t make claim to the jewel, citing that it was a gift from an Indian King to the Queen of England back in 1851. Yet most Indians say that this was not the case and that the jewel was actually stolen.

“The Government of India further reiterates its resolve to make all possible efforts to bring back the Koh-i-noor Diamond in an amicable manner,” said the Ministry of Culture in an issued statement.

The ministry added that the diamond is a “valued piece of art with strong roots in our nation’s history.”

India’s current Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, has said he will push for the return of the diamond.

Both India and Pakistan separated from England in 1947, when they formed their own nations. Previous to that, they were ruled by the Brits for 200 years.

Queen Elizabeth wore the Koh-i-Noor during George VI’s coronation in 1937 and the jewel was also temporarily placed on her coffin during her funeral ceremony in 2002.

When the Duchess of Cambridge is made the Queen Consort to Prince William, she’ll wear the lavish diamond at certain events

Up until 1839, the diamond belonged to Sikh maharajah Ranjit Singh. He wore it on his arms as an amulet. After his passing, his five-year-old son was given the diamond. When he was ten, the British government forced him to sign over the rights to the kingdom including the Koh-i-Noor. He’d eventually live in exile in England.

Given the tumultuous nature of this story, one can understand why India wants the stone back.
