My gate has been locked and all the awards I got in recognition of my services, are on the footpath out of my residece, during this I have extracted my own blood for seven times but governments cold response and unconscience no representative of government came to see me, because of this cold response Downfall Day will be observed. On this occasion he (J.Salik) will meet different presidents of associations of journalists, lawyers, businessmen and some other leaders. He will also visit all Katchi Abadies of Islamabad. He has appealed to nation for prayer.
He said that the purpose to observe Downfall Day is to complain against the cold behaviour of government. Where every matter of Christians is being neglected, it is decline of humanity. He further said that I am complaining about the cold response of government to me whereas they have neglected the father of the nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. On Quaid-e-Azam's Anniversary no special program was held from Prime Minister whereas President of Pakistan was not even present in Pakistan. On this occasion President and Prime Minister should have made a speech to the nation because in the country where we are sitting at the moment is the result of efforts of father of the nation Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah.
J.Salik further said that Christian who are equally contributing in the development of Pakistan have been deeply hurt because they are not being given their rights although our demands are according to prosperous Pakistan so government should pay full attention to our demands and should fulfill them immediately. He said that after the struggle of seven years which brought us Pakistan of seven digits is not more Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam where today bureaucrats have occupied the system and rulers have changed the map of Pakistan.
