"1849 Treaty of Lahore was a dubious legal document and punitive in nature and it was signed under duress by a seven year old Duleep Singh. Hence, the Kohinoor was taken away illegally from India as a war booty. Unlike the Mughal Kings who made India their home and contributed to the developement of the country, the British only wanted to profit from their occupation of India and left the country in ruins. If they have any sense of guilt of their past, they should return the Kohinoor and pay compensation for economic exploitation of the country."
