Pakistan faces yet another embarrassment, British HC rules in favour of India in Nizam of Hyderabad’s property rights case

The Nizam's descendants, Prince Mukarram Jah, who is the titular eighth Nizam of Hyderabad, and his younger brother Muffakham Jah, had recently joined hands with the Indian government in the dispute against Pakistan over the wealth lying deposited with London’s NatWest Bank plc.

Pakistan which has been facing severe humiliation after its Kashmir rhetoric and false anti-India narrative fell flat, is having to deal with yet another embarrassment. The British High court on Wednesday ruled in India’s favour in the legal tussle with Pakistan on the rights over the wealth of the Nizam of Hyderabad. While it rules that the Nizam’s property belongs to India, it also unmasks Pakistan’s deceit.

The Nizam’s property worth around £35 million has been the bone of contention between the two countries, as Pakistan, which is in a habit of lying through its teeth, has been claiming rights on the Nizam’s wealth.

However, coming as a slap on the face of Pakistan, the British HC today rejected Pakistan’s claim as it ruled that Pakistan has “no stake in the claim” in the decades-old case.

The Nizam’s property was deposited in a London bank account during the time of partition in 1947. The matter, however, reached the UK High Court after Pakistan persisted with its claim on the wealth. India has also been consistently putting in efforts to prove Pakistan wrong.

The Nizam’s descendants, Prince Mukarram Jah, who is the titular eighth Nizam of Hyderabad, and his younger brother Muffakham Jah, had recently joined hands with the Indian government in the dispute against Pakistan over the wealth lying deposited with London’s NatWest Bank plc.

Around £1,007,940 and nine shillings, which has since then appreciated into millions of pounds, were transferred from Osman Ali Khan, the then Nizam of Hyderabad, to the British High Commissioner of the then newly-constituted Pakistan in 1948.
