By "alphabet" it seems you mean "letter." The collection of symbols A,
B, C... is called an "alphabet." Each symbol is called a "letter."
If you want people to use a different shape for the letter K because the
existing shape means something bad in Hindi culture, go ahead and
publish your fonts and embark on your crusade to re-educate the world.
(Be patient; this type of change normally takes hundreds of years.)
Your issue is with the shape of the glyph. It is not a Unicode problem,
and it is not an ASCII problem.
