This petition had 8 supporters

The Koh-i-Noor (Persian forMountain of Light; also spelledKohinoor and Koh-i-nur) is a large, colourless diamond that was found near Guntur in Andhra Pradesh, India, possibly in the 13th century. According to legend, it first weighed 793 carats (158.6 g) uncut, although the earliest well-attested weight is 186 carats (37.2 g); it was first owned by the Kakatiya dynasty

The stone changed hands several times between various feuding factions in South Asia over the next few hundred years, before ending up in the possession of Queen Victoria after the British conquest of the Punjab in 1849.

Today, the diamond is set in the front of the Queen Mother's Crown, part of the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom, and is seen by millions of visitors to the Tower of London each year..So it is time to get back what belongs to Indians. 

Join this petition to force the UK Government to return Koh-i-Noor to india. This petition will reached our Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj and UN.
