To add a little to my initial response in this thread, and take the criticisms of the OP point by point:
incapable of educating, housing and feeding the masses
Here in the UK, we have a growing homeless population, and increasing number of people reliant on food banks to feed themselves. We have a "benefits" system with "sanctions" that has resulted in vulnerable adults starving to death in recent years. Yes indeed, this may not be on the scale of the problems in India, but we are supposedly a developed nation, and India are developing.
protecting females from mass gang rapes
I really don't want to minimise this problem, I actually feel quite strongly that it is something that should be tackled as robustly as possible (needless to say this doesn't include mob violence as an answer as has happened in some instances). It is, however, not uniquely an Indian problem, although it sounds like the scale of the problem there may be incomparable to that elsewhere. This is, of course, the sort of thing that international development can help with.
Again, this is a serious cultural problem, but let's not kid ourselves that it only occurs in India. There's this other big country right next door with a similar, if not greater, problem.
widespread police and political corruption
Well, you could say this about many, many countries. What about political corruption in the UK? Police corruption (and racism) in the US? Russia? Belarus? China? It's very easy to pint the finger at elsewhere, and say, "look how corrupt their politicians are" whilst not noticing corruption at home, because one of the things the corrupt do effectively is to suppress domestic opposition, through control of the media, and silencing of opposition. What is, to our eyes, obvious corruption elsewhere may not even be visible to the people living in that country.
wide scale sectarian and religious prejudice
Without even getting into the history of Christianity in Europe (and even the foundation of the good old tea-and-biscuits CofE is soaked in blood), you'd have to be blind to think this is unique to India. How about the fact that it is next-to-impossible to enter politics in the US without openly professing belief in some deity? How about ethnic cleansing of Uighur Muslims in China? I won't list all the places where religious conflict is actively taking place today, because it's a significant part of the planet.
Of course, the ever closer fusion between state and state religion in India is concerning, just as it is in Turkey, or in Russia. As a secular Humanist, it's worrying prevalent across the world. But again, not just India, is it?
My point wasn't that India doesn't have issues - it does - it was that many of the criticisms that are being levelled at India apply equally elsewhere, and India is a big ol' country - so criticism of one part shouldn't be used as an argument against the country as a whole. FWIW, I think there are many legitimate criticisms of India's government, and without getting drawn into foreign politics, I think Modi is an arsehole. But then again, so is Johnson, so is Trump, so is Putin, so is Xi, so is Bolsanaro, so is Erdoğan, et al. Criticism against India on those grounds is no more valid than criticism of almost any country.
