As per the video, Sharif declared that he is proud of the works his party has done for Pakistan and its people.
Nawaz said, “I built the Tomahawk missile. Our party brought it from Balochistan when Clinton fired a rocket in Afghanistan. We also have proof that we did its engineering. One of these missiles was found. We brought it and it was reverse engineering. This is not a small service for us and we are proud that we have done this service.”

Following his ridiculous statement, Nawaz Sharif has been criticized on Twitter, specifically by the ruling party and its supporters. The official Twitter account of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) has also criticized Nawaz Sharif’s statement.

Is there a difference between Cruise and Tomahawk missiles
From a technical perspective, there is no specific difference between Cruise and Tomahawk missiles. This is mainly because Tomahawk is also a specific type of Cruise missile.
The Tomahawk long-range attack missile had been created by American weapons manufacturer, Raytheon. It is a subsonic, all-weather cruise missile that has a nuclear capability.
It was mainly used by the USA Armed forces and submarine-based land-attack operations. The missiles upgraded versions could also focus on switching targets while in flight. Moreover, they can also change their course instantly on command.
According to the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Pakistan does not yet have Tomahawk missiles. The country has an extensive range of other missiles The Cruise and Ballistic missiles top the list.
