I reported the bug originally. I changed the fontspec directive in my
test file to not specify the language. I got a better output, but
still pretty bad.

Details w/ screenshot:


PS:  Btw fontspec does not complain about the language. In XeTeX, my
experience has been that if a language is not present, it logs a
message to stdout. I am not sure if fontspec on LuaLaTeX has the same
behavior, but I did not see a message complaining about language.

Also, here is the otfinfo output:

$> otfinfo -s NotoNastaliqUrdu-Regular.ttf
arab            Arabic
arab.ARA        Arabic/Arabic
arab.FAR        Arabic/Farsi
arab.KSH        Arabic/Kashmiri
arab.SND        Arabic/Sindhi
arab.URD        Arabic/Urdu
dflt            <unknown script>
latn            Latin
