Fundamentalist Islamic law demands one language and the banishment of western languages and culture hence the closing of the schools. Bilingual schools usually meant the study of a western language like English. Islamic ideology felt that these foreign languages, like English, would pollute their society. They were symbols of capitalist thought and culture that would infect their children. I suppose if you watch a rock video or observe the West's hyper sexualized culture one can understand the decadence they are referring to.
