Description

I have a problem with glossaries and makeidx packages. As you see in attached file (ex1.tex), I define two words and index them with below commands:
\index{\glsentryplural{StrictlyStable}}
\index{\glsentryplural{Absorption}}

Then I run below sequence of commands:

xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
xindy -L persian-variant1 -C utf8 -M numeric-sort -M latex -M latex-loc-fmts -M texindy %.idx
xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
xelatex -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex
But there are two problems in output pdf (ex1.pdf):
1) The index words, arranged according to name (English name), not according to plural.
2) The words are not grouped.

Note 1: please see ex2.pdf for correct result.

MWE

\documentclass{report}


\usepackage{makeidx}
\usepackage{hyperref}

\usepackage[sanitize={name=false,description=false,sort=false,symbol=false},nomain,xindy,acronym,acronymlists={main,tem}]{glossaries}
\usepackage{xepersian}

\makeindex

\newglossaryentry{Absorption}
{name={Absorption}, 
plural={جذب},
description={}
}

\newglossaryentry{StrictlyStable}
{name={Strictly Stable}, 
plural={‌پایدار قطعی},
description={}
}



\begin{document}

این یک مثال است.
\index{\glsentryplural{StrictlyStable}}
\index{\glsentryplural{Absorption}}


\printindex


\end{document}

Evaluation

If you inspect the .idx file you will see that it contains the following:

\indexentry{\glsentryplural{Absorption}|hyperpage}{1}
\indexentry{\glsentryplural{StrictlyStable}|hyperpage}{1}
\index doesn't expand its argument when writing to the .idx file and since xindy doesn't understand (La)TeX commands the index won't be correctly sorted. This is a feature of \index and is not connected with glossaries.

You could try something like

\expandafter\index\expandafter{\glsentryplural{StrictlyStable}}
