    Jinnah's only daughter, Dina Wadia, passes away at 98

    Dina Wadia, the only daughter of Quaid-i-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah and Rattanbai Petit, passed away in New York on Thursday, sources in Mumbai and New York confirmed.

    She was 98 years old.

    She had been born on the night between August 14 and 15 in 1919.

    Jinnah had raised Dina alone after his separation from Rattanbai and her subsequent demise.

    ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD
    He loved her deeply, but their relationship had become strained after Dina fell in love with and married an Indian Parsi named Neville Wadia at the age of 17.

    Dina and Neville lived in Mumbai and had two children, a boy and a girl, before the couple divorced.

    Dina had first visited Pakistan in 1948, when the year-old country had lost its founder, Mohammad Ali Jinnah.

    The last time she visited Pakistan was in 2004, accompanied by her son, Nasli Wadia, and grandchildren, Jehangir and Ness.

    After visiting the mausoleum of her father, she had written in the visitors' book: “This has been very sad and wonderful for me. May his [Jinnah's] dream for Pakistan come true.”https://www.dawn.com/news/1367906/jinnahs-only-daughter-dina-wadia-passes-away-at-98

    She grew up without any parental love and attention. She was like an orphan and that's even worse than being an orphan...very sorry existence...

    lol do you really wanna discuss this???
    i know a certain Orphan who turned out to be very fine even so fine that he is an example for humanity.

    People are people. She lived a full life. Let her go now. If you really really need to not stress about her alleged stress life option a) get married and drink lassi
    option b) she like Bangladeshiz
