I also tried to answer the original question, but since I could not find a proper solution I did not answer.
Indeed, the problem has something to do with bidi, and perhaps also with multicol. If you change the order of the packages, there is an error from bidi about multicolumn environment.
This is one of the perennial problems with (La)TeX, i.e. the interaction between the class file and the style files, which is nowadays even made worse with the various "modern" TeX engines (pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX, LuaLaTeX) which have their own options about PDF settings etc. Add to that the fact that sometimes there are class files or style files which rely on outdated packages...... I am often surprised that most of the time, everything works as well as it does :-))

 To clarify two points: to op used the intoc option, which should make the index appear in the toc (very aptly named, egreg). Thus, this is an example of bidi making a problem. It's just a lack of support really. The workaround he used was to save away the imakeidx version of theindex and restore it at the document beggining, which isn't dangerous at all. 
Also, the solution I put in the previous post was only to make an RTL index line up on the correct side. It doesn't actually add bidi support. Vafa should do that.
