Pakistan has suffered a major setback from the London court. After the British High Court’s decision in 1947, the decades-old legal battle with Islamabad over the property worth crores of Nizams of Hyderabad at the time of partition came to an end. The court ruled in favor of India. The court ruled that this property is owned by the heirs of India and the Nizam. The descendants of the Nizam and the eighth Nizam of Hyderabad, Prince Mukarram Jah and his younger brother Muftkham Jah joined hands with the Government of India in a fight against the Government of Pakistan over a deposit of around £ 35 million (around Rs 306 crore) deposited in NatWest Bank plc.
In a judgment delivered in London’s Royal Courts of Justice, Justice Marcus Smith said that ‘the seventh Nizam Osman Ali Khan had got the rights to the money. Therefore the Jah brothers and India, who claim to be the successor of the seventh Nizam, have the right to wealth. ‘ The verdict states that Pakistan’s argument of not being considered in court fails on the basis of the principle of activity involving another country and the logic of not being effective on the basis of being illegal.
