Can you explain me Article 222-1 of Turkish Penal Code. "Anyone who contravenes the Law on the Approval and Implementation of Turkish Alphabetical Characters (No. 1353) of 01.11.1928 shall be sentenced to imprisonment of from two to six months."
Does that mean that they can punish anyone who writes Kurdish letters in Turkey ?
Others will correct me, though as i checked that article is no longer in the Turkish Penal Code. i think since some years the Latin Kurdish alphabet is used in Turkey legally both in private sector, books, publications adverts and in official sphere too, including the characters that don't exist in Turkish alphabet. Here is for example the Kurdish site of the state's Turkish national public broadcaster company

I am looking for an information that if there is any such law in Turkey that prohibits the progress of Kurdish language ?

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.
