Wadias pleased with their visit to Pakistan
LAHORE: Dina Wadia, daughter of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, said on Thursday that she felt at home while in Pakistan and they were pleased to know that people held them in high esteem which, she said, showed how much they loved their leader Mr Jinnah.
The Wadias called on Punjab Governor Lt General (r) Khalid Maqbool at the Governor’s House in Lahore. The Quaid-e-Azam’s maternal grandson Nusli Wadia and Ms Wadia’s two grandsons were also present.
The governor informed the honourable guests about President Pervez Musharraf’s agenda to develop Pakistan and to inculcate a spirit of brotherhood and unity among the people of Pakistan, following the footsteps of the Father of the Nation.
He asked Ms Wadia to visit Pakistan again so that Pakistanis could channel their energies toward developing their homeland with a renewed spirit. This would also keep them abreast of the great Quaid’s golden principles, said the governor.
Ms Wadia came to Pakistan all the way from the United States to witness the cricket matches between Pakistan and India. This is her first visit to a country that came into being with the most sincere efforts of her illustrious father.
Ms Wadia left for Karachi to pray for the Quaid-e-Azam’s soul at his mausoleum.
