If you are saying uniscribe is GPL'ed, then I am wondering Pango also uses MS's 
API, display driver, etc. Does it mean everything is GPL'ed? Can you please 
tell us where one gets the source code for uniscribe, as according to GPL the 
source code *must* be provided.

If I am not mistaken, Pango uses the uniscribe dll, not it's source code. 
Uniscribe does not need to be under GPL for this. Does that make any sense?
