Does that mean that they can punish anyone who writes Kurdish letters in Turkey ?
I am not a lawyer but a quick google search revealed that this dates back to 1928, meaning it was mostly targeting Persian Alphabet (used to write in Ottoman Turkish) rather than "Kurdish Alphabet" that didn't exist back then.
Not sure if this article is still the same or modified or completely removed, either way, it's not enforced.
