One could form a neologism "misindicist" or "misindist". Technically, "-phobe" refers to one who fears (not hates) something; "mis-" refers to hatred (not fear) of something. This would be formed on the analogy of "misogynist" or "misanthrope".
The combining form of ‘India’ is Indo-, so the obvious answer is Indophobe/Indophobia.
This isn’t exactly a widely used word, but Googling it does bring up a few dictionary definitions (e.g., Wiktionary), a Wikipedia article (where it’s used synonymously with the main title, “Anti-Indian sentiment”), and usages by media outlets like the BBC and Huffington Post.
At any rate, I am not aware of any other words more commonly used to describe this.
India-hater appears to be a term recently used in papers and on the net:
- I am an India hater. And I don't do it for foolishness as many 'india lovers' would think of. Yahoo Answers
