Pe (پ) is a letter in the Perso-Arabic alphabet used for [p].

It is used in Persian and Kurdish and other Iranian languages, Uyghur, Urdu, Pashto language, Sindhi, Kashmiri, Shina language, and Turkic languages (before adoption of Latin/Cyrillic script) but not in Arabic, where it is usually substituted by the letter bāʼ (ب).
