How can I force all the letters go left to right including the characters from right-to-left languages in all buffers? Currently it displays the lines with right-to-left characters bidirectionally.


Bidi reordering is controlled by the buffer-local variable bidi-paragraph-direction. You make it default to L2R by adding the following incantation to your init file:

(setq-default bidi-paragraph-direction 'left-to-right)

(There is also bidi-display-reordering, but that can lead to crashes and should not be changed unless you're debugging Emacs itself.)
