Aslam Jinnah, the grandson of Quaid-e-Azam  passes away at the age of 70

Muhammad Aslam Jinnah, who claimed to be Quaid-e-Azam’s grandson passed away on Monday in Karachi at the age of 70.

According to various reports, he was suffering from a protracted illness and left behind a wife and a daughter. His funeral prayers were held yesterday at 1:30 pm after the Zohar prayers at Jama Masjid Habibia, Anda Mor in Karachi, and laid to rest in the Shah Muhammad graveyard in New Karachi in the presence of his loved ones.

His relationship with Quaid was disputed, up for debate, and could never be clarified nor confirmed. As various reports claim him to be a descendant of Quaid’s uncle, Nathoo Poonja, rather than Quaid’s himself.

He lived most of his life in a deplorable state in North Karachi. He only started to receive financial assistance from the Sindh government in the last 8 to 10 years.

Sindh government provided him the house where he was residing in, a yearly allowance, a car, and a driver. According to a report by The Express Tribune, even the cost of his medical treatment in his last stages was borne by the Sindh government.

Various politicians including the likes of Saeed Ghani (Education and Labor Minister of Sindh), Sindh’s secretary-general of Pakistan Muslim League – Functional condoled his death.

There are various reports that the descendants of Quaid’s brothers and sisters live in different cities of Pakistan and India. While the only undisputed grandchildren of Quaid currently reside in Bombay, India. These are the children of his late daughter Dina Wadia.
