It is always wrong to tell lies, and truth sometimes cannot be told.
A doctor should not tell his patients that they will die soon.
Faults of other people should not be told, it is judgment or backbiting.
Good qualities of a person told to wrong people may also cause harmfulness.
That is why truth should only be told to the right person at right time. There are also personal matters that telling publicly may bring us to court of justice.
We need tact, wisdom, boldness to decide to speak out or to keep silent.
Today, freedom of speech becomes a very complicated subject.

Baha’ullah says:

“Since most people are feeble and far-removed from the purpose of God, therefore one must observe tact and prudence under all conditions, so that nothing might happen that could cause disturbance and dissension or raise clamour among the heedless. Verily, His bounty hath surpassed the whole universe and His bestowals encompassed all that dwell on earth. One must guide mankind to the ocean of true understanding in a spirit of love and tolerance.”

(Baha’u’llah, Synopsis and Codification of the Kitab-i-Aqdas, p. 4)
