 Rafiq-ul Haq, a senior lawyer in Bangladesh, died at a private hospital in Dhaka Saturday morning. He was 65 years old.  He was treated at Ad-dinHospital for about a week. He was taken to life support a few days ago when his physical condition deteriorated.  The senior lawyer became the most talked about lawyer in his professional life in 2007, after a change of political pot known as One-Eleven, serving as a lawyer for imprisoned Awami League leader Sheikh Hasina and BNP leader Khaleda Zia.  He also donated a large amount of money to various hospitals for the development of medicine in Bangladesh, which is why he served as a member of the board of directors of several private hospitals, including Ad Din Hospital, until his death.  After 2006, during the caretaker government led by Fakhruddin Ahmed and former army chief Moin U Ahmed, the then govt filed cases against many top leaders of the BNP and AL, including BNP leader Khaleda Zia and Awami League leader Sheikh Hasina.
At that time Rafiqul Haque was acting as a lawyer for both Sheikh Hasina and Khaleda Zia.
 Supreme Court lawyer Shahdin Malik said he was able to become a lawyer for the leaders of the two parties because he did not have a specific political identity.
“In the reality of Bangladesh, any senior lawyer has some political identity. Rafiqul Haque was one of the few senior lawyers who were not involved in politics”, he added.
