Defamation & Slander

Saying or writing something which is harmful to a person's reputation, is called defamation. It’s against the law to intentionally harm someone’s reputation, cause them to be hated or disgraced through text, image, cartoons, caricatures or effigies.

Slander is a form of defamation that is spoken and heard. It is in a verbal form. For example, Rahul says bad things about the character of Seema which results in Seema losing her job. The act Rahul has committed is the crime of defamation in the form of slander.
