List of steps to reproduce (step by step, including full links if applicable):
- Go to any Odia Wikisource author page such as this (https://or.wikisource.org/s/2e6)
- Click on "Download" and select PDF
- Download and open the page
The first issue is political. The PDF starts with possibly a painting/artwork of a European white male (pardon my explicit tone and ignorance to investigate who the person is). The link to the author page that I have shared above is of a Dalit (read more on Wikipedia) scholar. Considering the colonial history of India and the long standing domestic oppression of Dalit-Bahujan peoples, it is outrightly offensive to have the same artwork on display when someone downloads. Representational images should not inherently be biased if they cannot be inclusive.
The second issue is technical. The typeface used does not correctly display Odia and the conjucts break. An alternate font can be Google's Noto Sans Oriya which is licensed under OFL 1.0 and should be compatible for Wikimedia projects.
What should have happened instead?:
- If a representational image has to be used for the PDF export then it should be something less biased, for instance an artwork showing the Odia writing system that does not inherently glorify historical/systemic oppression or it could just have the Odia Wikisource logo which does not invite unnecessary disputes.
- The conjuncts should be displayed correctly and a compatible font that does the job should be used instead.
