Defamation: What it is and How to Deal with It

Indian Cyber Army has found some of the reasons why Defamation becomes one of the most dangerous Crime as per company’s perspective.

First it is necessary to understand what it Defamation ?
Defamation can be explained as when any person tries to harm your reputation socially by saying something untruth about you or by writing any statement against you at any place like at social media etc.These statements or spoken words had a bad impact on your character is said as defamation.

There are two forms of Defamation:-

1. Libel –When someone harm your character by writing something bad about you is said libel defamation.
2.Slander – When someone harm your character by speaking something against or bad about you is said slander defamation.

From a poor person to a richer person, his respect is very important for him. It was also said that the person takes years to make his respect and It takes a minute for losing it. Everyone in society has the right to save his reputation, respect, fame and social respect from being hurt in any way, and if a person is playing with his respect and dignity, then he can go to Court.
To insult any person, to encroach him in the society, to make a false accusation on him,abusing him, come under indecision for defamation case and the person accusing him of it falls in the category of criminal .

Facts which fall within the defamation case:-

Many times we tell a person anything without thinking anything but a sentence and word we are told without thought can be a problem for us. From what things, facts, gestures of any person should be defamatory, we must know about it so that we can understand the thinking  and we can also know about our rights.
  • Relating to caste and community: For the purpose of showing a person downside, mentioning abusement about his caste, community and his religion comes in defamation.
  • Eligibility and fall of goodwill: If someone cautions the person's ability to reduce someone's ability, experience, knowledge and experience to be false, and propagate his religion in people, it comes in defamation. Such defamation can occur in any form of personal, collective and institutional.

Facts that do not come under the defamation case:-

No person will be prosecuted for libel unless it is proved that its purpose is not to disrespect the honor of the another person socially and to make a false allegation against him until it is proven right. For this, the victim must have all the evidence related to defamation.
