Suffer - Wait Till You Die ?

A sad incident at Jinnah College for Women University of Peshawar today, that I came to know of hours ago, has left me quite confused. Death cannot be cheated, we know that, but does that mean we should let the one in pain suffer to the extent of finally dying? A seventeen years old girl Maria Ayub, at Jinnah College for Women, University of Peshawar started suffering which seemed to be a heart attack, early this morning at college, around 7:30am. The students say that they argued with the teachers asking them to take her to the hospital, but the teachers said they were not allowed to leave college without the college principal's permission. The principal was not in college that early. They waited for 30 minutes till the girl breathed her last.

Were there no disprin or aspirin tablets? Were there no male members or workers in the office who could drive any of the several vehicles standing there? Could not any female teacher take her to the hospital? I remember living at the University Campus for some year many years ago. I remember they had a dispensary for emergency there at the Campus. I am sure that must still be there, and in a much improved condition. Could not anybody take her there? How did they know she was destined to die? Does religion order you not to go to doctors or get first aid, and wait for death to come to you because you are destined to die when you fall sick or suffer pain?
