How long has it been in that pot with that soil? I don't have this species but the symptoms you describe can be over watering. Old compacted soil and possibly a drainage hole blocked by roots can result in poor drainage, one response to a sickly looking plant is sometimes more water, but this is the the worst thing you can do.

I'm sure that depleted and crowded soil is the problem. Even up here
in the temperate zone I repotted my Tamarind annually and found the pot
crowded with roots each year. Seven years wold be an eternity in the
Philippines, or so I suspect.

Repotting should help.

Crush,

Your tamarind is suffering from leaf fungus. Since they are temperamental when it comes to pesticides, you should repot the tree and defolitate. In two to three weeks, the tree should be full of new leaves. Place it in full sun and keep moist, not wet.

Kind regards,

Jose Luis
