Why not "Mereka mulai membaca"?

The verb "start/mulai" is changed regarding the object, "to read/membaca". BUT you make an important point; the English appears to be incorrect. So, the sentence should read: "They start reading," dropping the article "to". Hence, "memulai" should be seen as intensifying the verb "reading".
