Gee I don’t know? Should I be arrested if I took some of the Queen’s shit?

A similar and equally ridiculous question was asked in a British newspaper related to the jewel and other artifacts stolen from the Subcontinent (now India, Pakistan and Bangladesh). It was about Koh-i-Noor; The Indian jewel in the Queen’s crown. It was confiscated from Kharak Singh in 1850 by the British East India Company and became part of the British Crown Jewels when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877. In simple words, Imperialist Britain stole it from the Subcontinent and never gave it back.
This is why I laugh real loud when folks from Europe or even USA tell me people from the “third world” are thieves and corrupt individuals. Last time I checked it was the fancy First World Folks sneaking in our lands, stealing our prized possessions and then having the shameless gall to ask if it should be returned but never returning what they stole.


Just think about it…
