Fawad Chaudhry Just Demanded The British Empire Return The Kohinoor Diamond And Apologize

By Biya Haq | 11 Apr, 2019

Pretty aggressive ask but we’re here for it.

Federal Minister Fawad Chaudhry just asked the British Empire for an apology and the Kohinoor back.

On Twitter, of course, lmao.

So, for those of you who haven’t brushed up on their history in a while, the Kohinoor is one of the most major gems in the history of the Subcontinent. It is one of the oldest most infamous diamonds in the world, the name Kohinoor itself meaning ‘mountain of light.’

It is said that the first mention of the diamond came 5000 years ago. It moved through generations of Shah’s and conqueror’s and then finally to Queen Victoria when the British took over in the sub-continent. Victoria who was the one to have the diamond altered and cut to a whopping 108.93 carats because allegedly, she thought it wasn’t shiny enough.

The diamond was kept with the Crown Jewels and till today is on display in the Tower of London.

Now, what does this have to do with Pakistan, you ask?

When the Brits went back to England, a line in the Treaty of Lahore stated that the Kohinoor was given to Britain under the treaty and thus would never return to Pakistan. However, once all was said and done, the diamond most logically would have returned back to its home in Lahore. Yet, fast-forward to present day, the Kohinoor still remains in the possession of the Crown.

Hence, Fawad Chaudhry’s suggestion in bringing the mountain of light home to the Lahore Museum.

With regards to the other part of the tweet, Chaudhry would like an official apology from the British Empire, to not only Pakistan but to India and Bangladesh for the Jallianwala Massacre and Bengal famine.

Not really sure if an apology will do justice to crimes committed years ago, however, an acknowledgement to the pain and suffering caused wouldn’t hurt. But honestly, why the hell would the Queen or any of the Royals for that matter take the blame for the events that took place? It is a good thought but it doesn’t seem likely.

It’s a pretty ridiculous request and people on Twitter seem to agree.

Like bro??

^ LMAO.

And hey, let the record show that I would absolutely love to have that beautiful rock sitting in our museum for millions of people to see and admire, but I also know that a rock is a rock, no matter how shiny it may seem.

Instead, we get to experience our culture and strength every day in knowing the fact that this country was built on perseverance, strength and unity just for us. Instead of asking for a rock back, we should be celebrating how far we have come without it.
