VHP international general secretary Pravin Togadia said, "There were nearly 2,000 Ram devotees travelling in the ill-fated Sabarmati Express on February 27 and they have seen the tragedy. These campaigners will tell people what they saw..."
"It is only to expose the secular forces and certain politicians who are sending wrong signals by visiting institutes funded by jihadi terrorists," he said referring to Congress president Sonia Gandhi's visit to the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies in London.
The VHP has sold about 1,000 T-shirts with a picture of the Sabarmati Express and the slogan 'We will not allow our village/town to become another Godhra'.
The back of the T-shirt has a picture of Chhattrapati Shivaji with the message 'Har Yuvak Bane Shivaji' [every youth should become Shivaji].
Twenty-five lakh badges and one crore pamphlets with these messages are being circulated in the state.
Togadia said the relatives of those who died in the Godhra attack will attend public rallies, but not address them.
The party has also come out with an eight-page booklet called 'Think-Understand', which, according to Togadia, "exposes the nature and working of secularists after the Godhra incident and their mentality towards the Kashmir issue".
