Try holding the home and power buttons together until the device turns off. Then turn it on, and while it's booting up, hold the volume up button. This will start your device with all tweaks disabled, allowing you to open up Cydia and uninstall the tweaks that are causing the problem.

Which tweak did you uninstall before this problem happened, by the way?

I tried that but still the same problem. I can see the words slide to unlock but there is no slider same with the switch off slider. I removed all the cydia tweaks that installed before this including Siri ,acid telepad,retina pad.after this I rebooted and my sliders were missing. Also before I rebooted the springboard froze everytime I pressed the volume buttons.this only happened on the springboard everywhere else was fine.
