Why Malaysian Government Insists on Using English for Math and Science?

Why Malaysian Government insists on using English for math and science?
This is because the whole world uses the language as an information and/or
technology language. How dangerous it will be if we try to use Bahasa,
especially in school. See example below:

Hardware = barangkeras
Software = baranglembut
Joystick = batang gembira
Plug and Play = cucuk dan main
Port = lubang
Server = pelayan
Client = pelanggan

ENGLISH:
That server gives a plug and play service to the client using either
hardware or software joystick. The joystick goes into the port of the client.

Now translate in BAHASA:
Pelayan itu memberi pelanggannya layanan cucuk dan main dengan menggunakan
batang gembira jenis keras atau lembut. Batang gembira itu akan dimasukkan ke
dalam lubang pelanggan.

Now you know...WHY...
