Following her death, Dina Wadia started trending on micro-blogging site Twitter with Pakistani Twitterati paying rich tributes to the daughter of Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan. 

Dina Wadia was born in London on August 15, 1919. Her paternal grandparents were from Gujarat, who moved to Karachi for business in the mid 1870s, where her father, Jinnah, was born.

She is survived by her only son Nusli Wadia.

Jinnah’s daughter 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.

“This has been very sad and wonderful for me. May his dream for Pakistan come true,” wrote Dina Wadia in the visitor’s book, during her visit at the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam.

She had also visited the mausoleum of Madar-i-Millat Fatima Jinnah to pay respects to her aunt. – SAMAA
