Min­is­ter asks UK to re­turn Koh-i-Noor diamond

Gulf News - - Pakistan -

India and Bangladesh for the Bengal famine and the Jal­lian­wala Bagh mas­sacre, in which British forces led by Bri­gadier Gen­eral Regi­nald Dyer opened fire on thou­sands of un­armed and peace­ful pro­test­ers, in­clud­ing women and chil­dren, killing scores of them on April 13, 1919.

“Fully en­dorse the de­mand that the British Em­pire must apol­o­gise to the na­tions of Pakistan, India and Bangladesh on Jal­lian­wala mas­sacre and Bengal famine. Th­ese tragedies are the scar on the face of Bri­tain,” the Min­is­ter tweeted. “... Also Koh-i-Noor must be re­turned to La­hore mu­seum where it be­longs.”
