Sure, bidi has nothing to do with it. And I woult prefer to modify the
prolog generated by the index. If you randomly redefine a few macros inside
\AtBeginDocument, it might fail unpredictably if a package is used with its
own modifications.

Stackexchange may contain useful solutions but the original documentation
is often a better and more reliable source of information.
