Quaid-e-Azam’s daughter Dina Wadia passes away at 98


LAHORE: Dina Wadia, daughter of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, passed away on Thursday at the age of 98.

Dina was the only child of Jinnah and his wife Rattanbai Petit. She was born on 15th August, 1919.

Dina is survived by her son Nusli Wadia.

Her paternal grandparents were from Gujarat, who moved to Karachi for business in the mid 1870s, where her father, Jinnah, was born.

She last visited Pakistan in 2004 during a landmark cricket series between Pakistan and India on the invitation of former president General (retd.) Pervez Musharraf. She considered cricket diplomacy to be an enthralling dimension.

Wadia had never visited Pakistan since her father’s funeral in September 1948.
