    Dina Wadia is survived by her son and Wadia group chairman Nusli N Wadia, daughter Diana N Wadia, and great-grandsons Ness and Jeh Wadia, the spokesperson said in a statement, Times of India reported.

    She was the only child of Muhammad Ali Jinnah and his second wife Rattanbai Petit who was also known as Maryam Jinnah.

    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.

    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.

    In 2007, Dina Wadia filed a writ petition before the Mumbai High Court, claiming that Jinnah House could not be classified as “evacuee property”, as her father had died without leaving behind a will and demanded that the house be handed over to her.
