Description of problem:
Apparently, the FreeType autohinter cannot handle Indic fonts
correctly.  Freetype with bytecode interpreter enabled works fine. I
don't suppose Fedora will be enabling that - so the best solution will
be disable autohinting for the MuktiNarrow font. The following lines
are needed in /etc/fonts/fonts.conf

         <match target="font">
                <test name="family">
                        <string>Mukti Narrow</string>
                </test>
                <edit name="hinting">
                        <bool>false</bool>
                </edit>
        </match>
