The Kingdom’s Diwali Gift to India

Riyadh, 27th October: Saudi Arab chops off Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir from the map of Pakistan.

BaaghiTV: Saudi Arab has gifted India as its Diwali present a 20 Riyal note that does not show Kashmir and GB as part of Pakistan.

On October 24, Saudi Arabia released a 20 Riyal banknote to commemorate its presidency of organising G-20 summit on 21-22 November 2020. The backside of the note is enough to leave Pakistan, KSA’s once most trusted ally, shocked!

The world map displayed on the backside of the note does not show Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) and Kashmir as parts of Pakistan.

According to the KSA official stand, Gilgit-Baltistan and Kashmir are now independent nations. This move by the Islamic Kingdom is a slap on Pakistan’s face which had released the country’s new political map on 5 August 2020.

As per sources, the 20 riyal commemorative note would come into the market on Sunday, October 25, 2020 and could be used along with other currency notes in circulation in the country.


The design of the currency note is unique, it has a picture of Shah Salman on it, there is a monogram of the Saudi leadership of G20, on the other side of the note there is a map of the world. According to Arab media, the new note has been prepared according to the latest standards and it has many technical features while it has also been prevented to prevent counterfeiting.

As reported by Economic Times on 10 August, 2020, the kingdom is slated to invest 15 billion USD in India’s Reliance Industries, and on 22 August it was announced that the Saudi Kingdom was looking forward to investing in a 60 billion USD oil refinery in India.

These moves clearly shows where Saudi Arabia’s priorities clearly lie!
