Mumbai, April 24: Iconic actor Naseeruddin Shah who feels disturbed about the recent barbaric rape and murder cases of young girls, says that more rape cases are reported to police and media these days, as compared to earlier, which is "a positive sign".
Asked at the trailer launch of his upcoming film "Hope Aur Hum" on Monday for his opinion about the rape and murder of an eight-year-old child in Jammu and Kashmir's Kathua, he said: "Well, rape is not a new phenomenon, such horrors have always happened; but the positive thing is, these days such cases are reported more.
"In fact, there is a very wonderful thing that read yesterday in a newspaper where a rape survivor was saying that why should the victim has to hide her face? It, in fact, the accused, who committed the crime should be ashamed, they should hide their faces. It's a threatful situation... I guessait's a good thing that media is so alert about all these things nowadays."
"It surely makes our morning horrifying, as the moment you open the newspaper, such news appears. But it is good that such incidents are talked about."
