Sindhi characters in Kacst fonts

Bug Description

Kacst fonts are great for Arabic, but many other languages have added characters to the original Arabic letters. For example, Sindhi uses many characters based on Arabic letters which are part of the Unicode Arabic chart. But the Kacst font does not support many of them. Thus users of other languages are unable to use it.

I suggest that the Kacst fonts should support the whole range of Arabic unicode characters, making it universal.

I do not know where these fonts come from, so would be happy to learn about the upstream project so I can report this directly.
