All Nafees fonts have the same preferred family name, Nafees, which is
wrong since they are different families.

As regard to Nafees Nastaleeq, I had a fork of it[1] mainly adding
Arabic support since it is an Urdu only font, but also fixing some bugs
in the original font. I mad no releases so far because I'm not very
happy with the quality of vowel mark positioning but had no time to work
on it yet (but it is not any worse than the original).
