Are we getting our Kohinoor Diamond back?
Some users wondered what they were talking about, so, they couldn’t resist themselves, assumed results on their own and made memes about it.
Few Twitter users said, ” World cup to jeetega hi, sath mein Kohinoor bhi le aao“. Some said, “You have two options Kohli, either you have to bring Kohinoor or world cup” or “When KOHLInoor’s brand value is more than Kohinoor itself”.
Even they left people in doubt if they are coming back with diamonds or not. What if these memes are true? What if in reality, we are getting our Kohinoor diamond back was the question popping up in everybody’s mind!

Kohinoor diamond and history?
Just in case you dont know about Kohinoor diamond, Kohinoor, the fabled Indian diamond, was surrendered by the Maharaja of Lahore to Queen Victoria. Kohinoor was neither stolen nor forcibly taken by Britishers, nor it was gifted.
The Kohinoor diamond was surrendered to Queen Victoria in the Lahore treaty held between Lord Dalhousie and Maharaja Duleep Singh in 1849.
Ever since we have got our independence, India and Pakistan both are trying to get back the diamond from the UK Government.
Well, news has leaked that “Queen Elizabeth is ready to give our diamond back if our men in blue win the Cricket World cup 2019”. After a gap of 170 years, she is finally ready to give those diamonds back.
Fact Check: True or Not?
There is no confirmation of such a statement by both Indian representative or Queen herself. It is confirmed that none of them has given any official statement on this update. hence the news is not confirmed. Thus the news is completely false and holds no ground.
India will play its first tournament on 5th June against South Africa.
The whole world is high on the 2019 Cricket world cup. We hope that our men in blue win diamond along with the trophy. Our fingers are crossed. This year, we have so many hopes from our team.
