GMP should realize that their quest for Scince and Math NOT to be taught in English is a serious oversight for intellectual advancement for this nation's human resources. It is already a statistic that for the recent PMR a majority of the candidates opted to answer the English version of their respective Science and Math question papers. What more reason do they need?
A rally against knowledge is the correct term to use here. Bahasa Malaysia Scholars and literature experts are indeed sentimental about the language. But they have indeed more important things to do. What about the bastardization of the language? It is everywhere now that Bahasa Malaysia used in a conversation and in writing have dropped in quality.
Let us take the enforcement of spelling. How many was do you know on how to spell the word "Telefon". I have seen "Talipon","Talefon" and "Telefon" used in publications. Where is that effort for uniformity? Why make noise and go to the streets and fight for Science being taught in English when they cant bloody decide how to use their language and enforce it generally.
Why is that books in BM have only a small section in every bookstore? Why is that there are publications like "Mangga", "URTV" and "Gempak" that bastardize the national language. Why action have not been taken to curb the spread on the bad use of Bahasa Malaysia? Why not even take to the street on that moot cause alone?
The terms in the science field is of Latin origin. Could there be a possibility that Bahasa Malaysia can capture the exact diction and pronunciation in spelling? What is the more worrying thought is that our children will be laughed at by the rest of the world as being experts in science and math who can't even pronounce the terms correctly.
Look on the other side of it please. The fight has a cause but it is not justified by what has been done so far. Bahasa Malaysia is a very young language and has not been fully developed and excercised. Focus on that first then go all out to the galaxy enforce rules on grammar and structure before demanding Science or Math to be taught in Bahasa Malaysia.
