The twin aspects:

Defamation has both the civil and criminal aspects. And you can seek remedy under either or both.
If it is a civil case, you can claim compensation.
If it is criminal, you can get the accused convicted .

The basic ingredients of a defamation complaint:

Public post: it must be posted on a public platform. A private message may not constitute defamation.

Defamatory & False allegation:  It must be a false allegation and defamatory to the extent it has harmed & lowered the prestige in eyes of others.

The Exception:

If any allegation is “imputation of truth” which is required for the “public good” and thus has to be published that is not defamation.
