Judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali said the use of Chinese and Tamil as the medium of instruction in the schools was legal.  In fact, the judge said, vernacular schools are also protected by the constitution.  Thus, he ruled that the existence of Chinese and Tamil national type schools (SJK) did not violate the Federal Constitution on the grounds that they were not a statutory body or local authority that was obliged to use the national language.  “The existence and establishment of these schools is not in conflict with the Federal Constitution, in fact, its existence has been recognized and protected since independence.  "The use of languages ​​other than Bahasa Malaysia which is the national language is also not against the Constitution because venacular schools are not a statutory body or public authority that is required to use the national language," he said.  In December 2019, GPMS and Mappim challenged the existence of Chinese and Tamil national type schools .  Both groups claimed vernacular schools were contrary to the use of the national language under Article 152 (1) of the Federal Constitution.  They applied for a declaration that sections 2,17 and 28 of the Education Act 1996 which allowed the use of the two languages ​​in vernacular schools were inconsistent with provision 152 (1) (a) of the constitution.  They also applied for a declaration of the existence and establishment of the school as unconstitutional.  Article 152 (1) (a) states that the national language is Malay and no one shall be prohibited from using (other than for official purposes) or from teaching or learning another language.
