1:01 pm
a certain german is gaining cult status football coach jurgen klopp maybe just a few football victories away from joining the liverpool list that includes some of football's greatest his team liverpool caused by music tonight. how to rock and i'm number those stories in just a bit but first some breaking news the iconic chanel design a car lagerfeld has died at the age of eighty five lagerfeld is reported to have been in ill health for several weeks the iconic designer missed two option as couture shows in january but the company only said he'd been feeling tired the hamburg born designer was one of the most prolific designers in modern fashion but
1:02 pm
also gained a name for his photography. joining me now from all is david levitz. to disco welcome david. is very known to everyone in the world of fashion but not just what made his fashion so unique. it wasn't just about his fashion i mean it was also about him very much as a as a personality the man behind the dark glasses with this white hair always pulled back in earlier years he always had a fan with him about was in his years when he was he was larger and this was almost like his armor you know who was the man behind the armor we never really got a glimpse of it of him and that was sort of a mystery he did he did let out a lot of gruff humor let's say you know when heidi klum came onto the scene he said well i don't know her and claudia schiffer doesn't know her either. so there was the fashion on the one side and then there was this personality and i would say
1:03 pm
this personality is part of what makes it hard to believe that he's no longer with us he missed out on those shows a. week in paris last month chanel said that he was sick but it he's a living legend and with little living legends it's almost hard to believe that they are mere mortals in a way. now with karl lagerfeld what what he's known for in the fashion world particularly is reviving chanel chanel was a brand that was on hard times no one thought that anyone could bring it back and that's what he did at the beginning of the early eighty's so he is he's an icon in the fashion world and was also of course be remembered as a personality he was a great personality as you said and of course and talking about his fashion i have an amateur interest in fashion i always thought he understood women he discovered some of the was stuck models as you mentioned a saudi. and you know a couple of others who admired him loved him and adored working with him and when
1:04 pm
you look back at a man who was seen as a legend in the fashion was. what do you think he's beaten them but for most well he brought. in a way to the world by reviving chanel he was also one of the first top designers to have a fashion label in his own name that he brought to a wider public he worked with aging them together before versace did it before don't think about it before stella mccartney so in a way he also played a role in democratizing the big names of paris fashion he's also known for her is a quite a few anecdotes he was a rival of some of all in their younger years in paris of course he's survived by decades. to have a seven decade long career in fashion and i don't think that his legacy is going away anytime soon after he had such a love of fashion and the lines i remember about him is that anyone who goes around getting track pants has lost control of his life it's something that i can
1:05 pm
empathize with by that. but i do expect fans but only in the gym david david thank you very much and of course we talk to you again later in the program as more details become available and that of course is to remind viewers have just joined us at the judgment fashion designer a friend has died after a few weeks off in this new mall on that story as details become available now the catholic church is facing a new storm of sexual abuse allegations this time involving anon in the southern india state of like or to many others this case follows a familiar pattern allegations of abuse and then cover ups by top to the men one of the most shocking cases a bishop accused of raping a nun thirteen times over a period of two yeahs the nun in that case says she was ordered to remain silent as church leaders closed ranks one of a fellow sistas encouraged call and other victims to speak correspondent sonja
1:06 pm
father has more. it's early morning in. the church here has always been a powerful institution but in recent months its foundations have been shaken by sex scandal last september a nun and get accused an influential bishop of repeated rape when officials believe to actually a group of nuns rallied around the victim and held unprecedented public protests. one of those who joined those protestants was sister lucy culebra she cravat from a home here in the district of why not to support the alleged victim. the nun is wary about being filmed public she chooses an empty auditorium to speak in the thirty six years that she's been a nun she's come across many instances of sexual abuse by the clergy. abuse in the terrorists by preachers to that now as it's happening but it is silent
1:07 pm
a lot of story i have all day. got shared by the sisters and i don't how do three experiences like that prompting me tempting me to their own ambition but they're trying. to sit with them at a lot of mistakes inside the turret but they're not ready to. do. all this for it. instead of that they're covering up all this. the catholic church in india has largely stayed silent on the allegations against the bishop was arrested last year following the protests and then grill east on bail even here and why not officials were relieved to see one priest who did agree sort to downplay the issue. my position is my remember i.
1:08 pm
brought. my i was. brought up in the public discussion so i started and said that speaking out against the powerful catholic church and drawing attention to sexual abuse is never easy especially in a conservative state like. nuns who are deaf to break the culture of silence faith ridicule i thought lucian and even disciplinary action from the congregations this is. just about joining protest sister lucy has written articles criticizing the church silence on sexual abuse she's received warning letters from her congregation ordering her to stop speaking out she's been accused of causing harm to the church and belittling the catholic leadership says it. doesn't like that last anybody can speak freely frankly. to the world if i am abused to serve the now there that
1:09 pm
can bring me to them being a stat that so many are coming to the fact many many are coming openly. to that. society today to talk there is not if there is no cult like that we are all of a slave. in this case. despite the warnings the nun has no plans of backing away what i had i had to do i must be. made like that. to lucy's hope is that the lead to scandal will shine a light on the church speed leagues and make some much needed reforms. joining me now from delhi. she's the director of the center for social research in india and an active campaigner for women's rights to the public protests by the nuns over the abuse of the catholic church was quite unprecedented what impact has
1:10 pm
this had there. well i think it's a deep impact because not only that there is an environment in the country at the moment where women are questioning religious institutions hindu women are questioning their right to enter the temple muslim women's has thing to do away with all kinds of obnoxious cultural and religious practices with people like triple the lock same be it first time ever war someone from inside the church and none comes out and you know the kind of really in their own straw out of the bishops on them by you know trying to prevent them first they'll second given they came out on the protest to tell them that they will be really published and penalized will have done because of the largest support that they got from this was id from him is organizations from all of us they managed to stand the ground and they managed to fight back and i think that is this is if it's deep down investigated this whole idea of celibacy and trying to see that all these people
1:11 pm
are living by the rules of the church is not true women are sexually getting exploited and add is and now that we in our country have a lot to really protect women against sexual harassment at walkways that in the minority belittled blue dragon as one of the nuns said that because of me too movement you know it is very strong now be men are realizing that they're not supposed to be becoming some kind of a sexual slaves in the institution they're walking all they're not supposed to speak out you know as we heard in our report the nun who alleges he was raped no support from within the catholic church suddenly it was the police who arrested the bishop and then let him out on bail what is expected to happen now. but you know the it is now the ball is in the court of the police and i think because of the when they were trying to suppress the why is within the charge that you know they were the they were really scaring them and they were trying to tell them that if you come out you will repeal lies and that is why the voice was not coming out but
1:12 pm
now that given and didn't of course there was a big outrage in the country you should have seen the electronic media get out of it print media every read it was there in the social media people started protesting and finally the police was really forced to take action now the ball is in the court of the police the weevil for investigation there is a charge of sexual assault and this is a very very serious offense often in my arc is you know we change the law any kind of sexual assault to really be in a look and see done under the law and was you know suggestion is complete and cases filed i'm sure he is going to be punished for sexually assaulting that one and they cannot really they try to bully them but it is not it was not working because there is so much of the support from outside and people like us are standing with the nuns to support them not the catholics at a very small community and under nine in december two percent of what you will see there is a broader support for the nuns among the community there. absolutely absolutely
1:13 pm
there is a general environment which is changing that is a cultural a shift in india which is taking place where women's right with dignity at walk is really getting institutionalize it is through the law and by them and that themselves and by the action of the large of amos woman support that we are trying to really push for this and catholic church has to come up with some kind of a solution they cannot just covered it up because this is not this is one is we had an unspoken god might support the support of the state know all kinds of political groups also in the state and that is why they have been able to stand the ground and in spite of all the critics that the church just had no business or curtain the nuns were big declared the nun bishops have come together and they have taken the nuns know what he's talking nobody see this senior from the church is talking about it at all they're not going to make a statement but that doesn't matter the crime has taken place we have a lot of good men and this sexual assault case will be really i investigated and
1:14 pm
and there has to be some kind of or you know all punishment to the bishop right around to the defective of the center for social research in delhi thank you very much for that. there's been a bring you up to do some other stories making news around the world pakistani prime minister iran khan has warned his country would retaliate if india takes military action calling last week's deadly attack in the disputed kashmir region of pakistan based militant group jaish e mohammad claimed responsibility for that attack on a security convoy the top indian military command in kashmir accuses pakistan's intelligence agency off involvement. u.s. senator bernie sanders has announced he would run for president again in two thousand and twenty elections saunders ran for the democratic presidential nomination in two thousand and sixteen but ultimately lost out to hillary clinton
