Istanbul Municipality forbids usage of Arabic writing in restaurant-signs

Via Hurriyet (Link in Turkish) – Istanbul Fatih Municipality sent a notice to the restaurants in Fatih-Yusufpaşa in 2016, noting that only Latin alphabets could be used in the signs. Mohamed Nizar Bitar, owner of a fast-food restaurant who does not want to change his Arabic writing label, has started a legal process against the municipality.
