Malaysia's police and troops may be out of jobs if the wrong leadership takes control of the country, warned Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak.

"What if those with hidden intentions, those that don't understand the country's history, what if they propose the disbandment of the Royal Malay Regiment because it is not in line with the Malaysian Malaysia concept, what are the implications to our country?"
