The Return to India of the Koh-I-Noor diamond

India's territorial integrity hinges on the Koh-I-Noor diamond which is part of the Imperial Crown of Great Britain Of recent there have been two countries laying claim to the Kohi-I-Noor diamond which graces the Imperial Crown of Great Britain, one is India and the other is Pakistan. Only India has any real claim, while Pakistan which was carved out of the sub-continent India on August 14, 1947 by descendants of the Islamic invaders of India which began in the 12th century have absolutely none whatever. But, India's claim hinges on its return to both Nepal and Burma, (now Myanmar) of territory stolen by the British East India Company, which in 1858 became the British Empire of India under the direct control of Great Britain.

In the Anglo-Nepalese War of 1814 the forces of the victorious British East India Company forced the Kingdom of Greater Nepal to cede Garhwal, Kumoan, Darjeeling, Naini Tal and Simla to them, under the Anglo-Nepalese Treaty of Sugauli signed in December 1815 making it part of their Indian territorial holdings.

Now we come to the Anglo-Burmese Wars, which ended when the victors, the British East India Company, forced the defeated Kingdom of Burma to sign the Treaty of Yandaboo, by which Burma was forced to cede Assam, Manipur, Arakan and Taninthay to them, which they then promptly made part of their Indian concessions.

While the Indian and Pakistani Lawyers are making a case for the return of the Koh-I-Noor diamond from Great Britain, their case is fraught with many hidden dangers, because any case for the return of the Koh-I-Noor diamond, depends also on India's willingness to return to Nepal and Myanmar (Burma) the territory which was stolen by the East India Company in 1814 and 1824 and is now in their possession. So, both the Indian and Pakistani Lawyers had better put on their thinking caps, because there really is no easy way out of this mire.
