One of the weirdest things is that the govt of Oman is one of the 11 full members of the Consortium that decide new emojis. The other 10 are tech companies. This is the same group that decides web fonts so it’s possible they are there to push for better Arabic scripts (actually - it’s the ministry of religious affairs in particular so it’s probably to push for Quranic scripts)

And then there’s Pakistan’s Ministry of Science and Tech that’s been a full member 2001-2009 and the only national body among a plethora of tech companies that’s pushed for urdu fonts
