Halacha - Lashon Harah
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is it lashon harah to repeat to a friend some words of Torah from a Rabbi- which you know will cause the friend to speak lashon harah about that Rabbi- since you know that your friend will take offence to those words.

Saying something that you know is likely to provoke someone else to say lashon hara is forbidden and referred to as avak lashon hara. Furthermore, it is a problem of lifnei iver. Of course this is not a justification for your "friend" to say lashon hara, and certainly not about a Rabbi and his divrei Torah.
