Preity Zinta saddened by demise of Quaid's daughter Dina

Daughter of Quaid Dina Wadia passes away

Dina, who had mostly shied away from the public eye came to the forefront again after she made claims to her father's mansion called "South Court" or "Jinnah House" in Mumbai. She moved to NY several decades ago, and stayed alone in the city with her staff. Dina was the only child of Jinnah and Rattanbai Petit, and was born on August 15, 1919.

In an interview to Indian media, the former beau of Ness Wadia remembered her first meeting with Jinnah's daughter saying, "I stared at her open mouthed". Through her marriage to industrialist Neville Wadia, she belonged to the prominent Wadia family. "Oddly enough, precisely 28 years to the day and hour before the birth of Jinnah's other offspring, Pakistan". She married Neville Wadia in 1938 and moved to Bombay. She had never visited Pakistan since her father's funeral in September 1948. She was 98. The Foreign Office in a message said that President Mamnoon Hussain and Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi "expressed deepest condolences, on behalf of the people and government of Pakistan, on the passing away of Ms Dina Wadia". She was buried in a Twelver Shia cemetery by a weeping Jinnah who was aware that she had killed herself because of neglect caused by his stormy political career. Jinnah, in his will, had left the $400 million property for his sister Fatima, who died shortly after his demise. Reddy said that Lady Petit was a huge influence on her life, and that Dina only grew close to her mother once Ruttie separated from Jinnah.

The last time Dina visited Pakistan was in 2004, accompanied by her son Nusli Wadia and her grand children Jehangir and Ness.
