Islamabad: Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s (founder of Pakistan) daughter Dina Wadia at the age of 98 passed away, according to the source, today on November 3, 2017 she went under the soil forever.

According to the reports, Dina Wadia was the only child of Muhammad Ali Jinnah with his wife Rattanbai Petti (who accepted Islam and was disowned by her parents). She scored almost a complete century, then she left her relatives alone in this world.

Stanely Wolper in his book “Jinnah of Pakistan” wrote, “Oddly enough, precisely twenty eight years of the day and hour before the birth of Jinnah’s other offspring, Pakistan.”

“Her premature arrival was unexpected-her parents were at the theatre, but were obliged to leave their box hurriedly.”

Later Mr.Jinnah disowned her daughter because she got married to an industrialist Parsi man Neville Wadia, by making an excuse that her mother who was also Parsi accepted Islam and got married to a Muslim man.

According to Jinnah’s will, she was not allowed to enter Pakistan but she came twice to Pakistan, once in 1948 to attend her father’s funeral and later in 2004 in Lahore to attend a cricket match.

According to media reports, the whole Pakistani nation expressed grief at the death of Nation’s father Muhammad Ali Jinnah’s daughter.

Famous Journalist Fawad Hussain said, “Dina Wadia, only daughter of Quaid-e-Azam (great leader) M.A Jinnah is no more, she was born on 15 August, 1919 end of an era RIP Ms. Wadia.”

Omer Qureshi wrote, “Ironic that Jinnah’s only child Dina Wadia who passed away at the age of 98, never lived in a country he created-visited once in 2004 with her grandchildren.”

Furthermore, Dina died as Parsi, she didn’t follow her father’s religion. Her death was the end of Jinnah’s legacy.
