    She wasn't allowed to inherit any part of her father's estate in Pakistan, was she?

    As per Jinnah,s will, she didn't get any. However, there is a big chunk of land disputed between her and Punjabi govt in Lahore. No one is allowed to do anything with it.

    She was disowned by Jinnah, even though she was raised by him as a single parent. Its a cultural thing when you try to marry without the blessings of parents.

    Irony is, Jinnah only grand child is Nusli Wadi, and he is a well known figure in India, a businessman. See the resemblance: ?

    It is on Malabar Hill, the most pricey property in whole of India. Almost build on 2.5 acres plot, it can fetch you half a billion dollars if you sell it. Pakistan wants it, India wants it, and Dina Wadia wanted it.

    Jinnah's will deeded his property to his sister and directed that his daughter and grandchildren receive an annual stipend: link. But when Fatima died her niece was the closest heir, yet she received nothing.

    Not given by who?

    10. I direct my executors to set apart Rs. 200,000/- (two lacs) or (two hundred thousands) which will at 6% bring an income of Rs. 1,000/- one thousand and pay the income thereof whatever it be to my daughter every month for her life or during her lifetime and after her death the corpus of two lacs so set apart to be divided equally between her children, males or females, in default of issue the corpus to fall into my residuary estate.


    Codicil to the Will
    Legislative Assembly

    This is my codicil to the Will. I have an account with the National Bank of India, Bombay as account No.2 and also I hold (500) Five hundred shares of the Reserve Bank of India now in the possession of the Bank standing in my name but purchased out of the money in account No.2.

    This account & all moneys deposited & invested were given to me personally by various public spirited donors to use them & do what I liked with them for the uplift of the Musulmans. I therefore have full & absolute power to dispose them in such manner as I may consider proper.

    I, now having full power of disposition, bequeath the same to my executors and they are to use the capital &/or interest thereof in any way they may consider proper relating to this account.

    Besides this amount and 500 shares of the Reserve Bank I have other accounts of mine own in the National Bank of India & also in the Imperial Bank at Bombay & New Delhi but those & all other accounts abroad with any Bank or Banks are my own absolute property and will be governed by will of mine that I have already made.

    At the end of the day, she was our Quaid's daughter.
    May she rest in peace.

    I have no right to talk about Mr Jinnah and Dina's personal family life and therefor I won't.

    May she rest in peace. Another chapter of Quaid's life has closed today.
