‘Kohinoor Vapis Karo’ Trends On Twitter As Royal Family Decides To Swap The Diamond In Crown! Indians Demand Their ‘STOLEN’ Treasure Back-READ BELOW
The Queen Consort will reportedly have the crown altered and the diamonds from the Queen’s private collection will be added
The preparations for the coronation of King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla are in full swing in the United Kingdom. Amid the big event, the queen has decided that she will not don the Queen Mother’s crown set with the Kohinoor diamond for the coronation.
As per the reports, the Queen Consort will have the crown altered and the diamonds from the Queen’s private collection will be added. This has ultimately revived the debate around Kohinoor and Indians have demanded the return of the jewel.
The Vogue shared an elaborate post regarding UK Royal Family’s crown along with a throwback picture. The caption of the post read: “Last week, the Royal Family officially announced that Queen Mary’s crown, which held a replica of the #Kohinoor diamond, would be reset without the stone ahead of the coronation of King Charles III. Some interpreted this as a sign that the Crown doesn’t want to upset India. For others, this was a signal that the Crown wants to slowly shed its colonial legacy – a legacy mired with blood and looting and move into a new world order where kings and queens and all the treasures they hold are just titular. But to what extent is this symbolic gesture successful? Tap the link in our bio to read more.”
The post instantly went viral and netizens stormed the comments section to speak up about the debate. Indians have now demanded that the British should return the Kohinoor. One of the user wrote, “An actual gesture would be to return the diamond to 🇮🇳. No one needs this performative nonsense.” Another user wrote, “Here’s a thought – just return the Kohinoor to India.” The third one wrote, “Send the diamond back to the Indian government please, they stole it from that ten-year-old ruler and it was a family heirloom.”
A section of Indians have also discussed their theories in the comments section. One of the users wrote, “I don’t think any of these is the actual reason. History says that Kohinoor has a bad legacy of curse if worn by men. I’m assuming that’s the reason they’re removing it from the crown.”
