After the demise of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II, people were concerned as to who will succeed her and more importantly, what will happen to the Kohinoor studded crown of the Queen.
Pictured here is the Kohinoor diamond. Stolen by the British and now in the hands of their Royal Family.
The British looted an est £45 thrillion from India between 1765-1938. They looted so much the word loot entered the English language from the Hindustani word meaning to rob pic.twitter.com/8x0lzFU6tG

According to Hindustan Times, the Queen’s crown that’s studded with the world’s biggest diamond along with 2,800 other precious stones will go to the wife of Prince Charles, Camilla, after he will be crowned the King of the UK.
The world's most controversial diamond, Kohinoor is set to change hands.
The diamond, currently set in the Imperial State Crown, is set to be inherited by the Queen's daughter-in-law, Camilla.

But Indians think that since the most controversial 105.6 carat diamond in the world was discovered in India’s Golconda mines in the 14th Century, it was time to bring back the ‘Mountain of Light’ to where it belongs.
They expressed their feeling to bring back India’s diamond with memes.
They’re distracted, somebody go steal back the Kohinoor

Kohinoor was mined from the Tribal area of Andhra Pradesh. I wholeheartedly believe the Queen would have returned the stone to the tribals but the British know about India and Indians very well. Indians would not hesitate to sell the tribals as slaves to Queen in return for stone https://t.co/elZuU69mHL

Who will they return it to? Kohinoor belonged to pre-partition India, I think both Pakistan and Bangladesh would want a piece of it. 🤔 https://t.co/5WyTSijmv1

Our governments tried to negotiate in past but UK declined it. We wish it comes back but again it’s been said Kohinoor is cursed, who knows what ill omen will it bring to us. Confused.

Kohinoor belongs to India but there are two countries who claim Kohinoor as their own, Pakistan and Afghanistan because it’s a matter of during Akhand Bharat.🙄

It’s not the first time that Indians demanded their diamond back. A couple of years ago, some Indians decided to sue the Queen of England to get back the Kohinoor diamond. The Indian government had demanded the Kohinoor back in 1947. But the British government wasn’t keen on it. The Kohinoor is also claimed by other countries including Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Kohinoor ka toh pata nhi but Twitter is currently a diamond mine of memes and jokes.
