I can provide you the TTF file by email which you can install in Linux.
Or you can try an alternative. Download the EXE package from BBC Urdu's web-site. Install it in windows. Then copy the file C:\Windows\asunaskh.ttf or may be AsiaTypeNaskh.ttf .
Copy the file to /usr/share/fonts on Linux partition. Or make a directory .fonts in your home directory and copy it there. After that newly started applications will automatically find and load the font.
