I do not know how to do it in imakeindex but I could do it in xindy. I have
an Urdu-Hindi dictionary so I can find the sort oder of most characters but
I do not know where to put bari yeh (ے), dochashmee he (ھ) and maybe a few
more characters that never appear at the beginning of the word. This is not
too much work, if you give me the correct order of all characters
(including alif maqsura which appears in words like موسی), I can make it
(but it may take a few days, I am currently quite busy).
