The current default Arabic font (PakType) is very ugly and unreadable that I think it should be removed. Other fonts doesn't fully cover Arabic script; KACST fonts only support Arabic and Nafees fonts only support Urdu. There is also no fixed width Arabic font.
In short I think we should get ride of paktype-fonts and kacst-fonts and replace them with a more readable with wider coverage Arabic fonts.
