How to search for tickets having question mark in the description? Edited

I am trying to write a script that involves fetching the ticket ID by passing the description to the Jira API. It works well in all cases except for when the description has a question mark in it within single quotes.

Ex: in my ruby script, the jql used is:

"jql" => "project = ABC AND labels in ('abcd') AND description ~ \"#{message}\""

and here message is a variable holding the description content which has  'abc?'. (including single quotes)

Can anyone help me how to handle this case?
