Life full of service to all recalled

Chifley federal Labor MP Ed Husic told Parliament the late Dr Haq was a great fundraiser for charity and people in need.
Through his involvement with local organisation Good Morning Bangladesh, Dr Haq and his colleagues helped to raise $150,000 for the Cancer Council of NSW over 15 years.
In the last four years Dr Haq helped raise $150,000 for a cancer hospital in Dhaka, Bangladesh with Rotary Australia World Community Service.
Dr Haq ran an educational coaching school for selective and HSC students, and was involved in the establishment of the Quakers Hill Mosque.
