I was talking specifically about Arabic not Urdu, so my comment does not really apply to the issue being asked. But here is a comparison between the 3 characters in Amiri and Noto Nastaliq Urdu the form of HEH DOACHASHMEE is clearly different from HEH (other fonts might use different forms and might not make such distinction). Noto Nastaliq Urdu does not have the MATHEMATICAL INITIAL HEH as expected, but that is the form I’d find more appropriate for Hijri in Arabic (judging by hand-written calligraphy):
