Born in 1857 Paneli Moti

Jinnahbhai Poonja was a prosperous Gujarati merchant, in the weaving business. He moved to Karachi from Kathiawar, because of his business partnership with Graham's Shipping and Trading Company, whose regional office was set up in Karachi. He moved to Karachi in 1875 before Muhammad Ali Jinnah's birth. He and his wife had 7 children.

Muhammad Ali Jinnah's father got the house (now Wazir Mansion) for rent in 1874 and settled here for some time. By 1900, he again returned to his native state, Gujarat, British India.[6] "Gowardhan Das was also among the owners of this building from whom Wazir Ali Ponawala (from whom the house had got its name 'Wazir Mansion') bought it at some point in 1904."[4]

Lather Jinnahbhai did live in Bombay. - “His father, sister (Fatimah Jinnah) and his wife (Emibai) were living in Khoja Muhalla of Bombay; and it was during these days that Emibai fell victim to an outbreak of cholera”
