Thanks.  On my system, this is displayed correctly, with kasrah above
the letter.  So I don't think it's Emacs, I think it's the shaping
engine you are using.  As you didn't provide the information collected
by "M-x report-emacs-bug", I can only guess what is that shaping
engine: XFT and libflt, right?  Maybe you could try building the
harfbazz branch, which uses HarfBazz for shaping, I'd expect this
problem not to exist there.
