Dina Wadia , daughter of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah , passed away in London on Thursday at the age of 98.
Born in London on August 15, 1919, Wadia was Jinnah's only child through his second wife Rattanbai "Ruttie" Petit. Her mother was a member of two of the elite class families of Bombay, the Petit–Tata family. Through her marriage to industrialist Neville Wadia, she belonged to the prominent Wadia family.
In March 2004, Wadia visited Lahore, Pakistan, to watch a cricket match between Pakistan and India. She considered "cricket diplomacy" to be an enthralling dimension that illustrated an entirely new phase in relations between India and Pakistan. Wadia had not traveled to Pakistan since her father's funeral in September 1948.
Wadia, her son Nusli Wadia and grandsons Ness Wadia and Jehangir Wadia also visited the mausoleum of her father to pay homage. In the visitors' book, Wadia wrote: "This has been very sad and wonderful for me. May his dream for Pakistan come true." Reports said that she asked for copies of three pictures she saw in the mausoleum's antiquities room. In one picture, she is standing with her father and aunt, Fatima Jinnah. The other is a painting of her mother, Maryam Jinnah. In the third, her father is dictating a letter, showing Mohammad Ali Jinnah's political persona.
She also went to the tomb of Madar-e-Millat Fatima Jinnah to pay respects to her aunt and Flagstaff House Pakistan to host the flag of Pakistan and her father's house Wazir Mansion.
