Kohinoor debate: ‘Give it back to India’; Watch Indian-origin journalist’s fiery debate on UK show

Kohinoor debate: Kohinoor debate is back in focus as the day for King Charles’ coronation draws near. Queen Consort Camilla recently announced she will not wear the Queen Mother’s crown embedded with the diamond for the coronation. The announcement by the Buckingham Palace re-ignited the debate on whether the Kohinoor should be returned to India- or not.

A similar debate on a popular UK TV show has gone viral. While the writer and broadcaster of GB News Emma Webb argued that the diamond’s ownership can be disputed, fellow broadcaster Narinder Kaur hit back saying, “You do not know history.”

‘A contested object’

“The ruler was also the ruler of Lahore so is Pakistan going to get a claim on it?” Emma Webb asked. “They stole it from the Persian empire. The Persian empire invaded the Mughal empire so this is a contested object,” Emma Webb added.

In response, Narinder Kaur said, “You do not know history. It represents colonisation and bloodshed. Give it back to India. I don’t see why an Indian child from India has to travel all the way to the UK to look at it and pay for it.”

‘Dark brutal colonial history’

Sharing the clip that has now gone viral, Narinder Kaur tweeted, “The Kohinoor diamond was founded in Indian soil. It represents to the British their dark brutal colonial history. They have NO BUSINESS in continuing to benefit from colonisation. The UN recognises the right of a country to reclaim its treasures.”

The clip received mixed reactions from internet users.

“Terrible debate. All I heard was noise. No articulate argument made. Would have liked Emma to finish a sentence without her being interrupted, to be honest,” commented MarkwithaK (@e2130).

Another Twitter user Magnolia Peacock (@MagnoliaPeacock) wrote, ” What a catfight. So much shouting that one couldn’t hear the points trying to be made. Felt very sorry for Ranvir and Ed. A commercial break was needed and the two women removed. A discussion/debate is one thing a shouting match is another.”
