Preferred licenses of LibreOffice are LGPLv3+ / MPL. 

In README_te.txt I read LGPLv3 or later or GPLv3 or later which are fine.
Header of hyph_te_IN.dic mentions GPL only. This should be corrected.

GPLv2 or later. I recommend using GPL/LGPL/MPL tri-license (so it can be used in LibreOffice and in Mozilla as well).

For example you can write:

The contents of this software may be used under the terms of
the GNU General Public License Version 2 or later or
the GNU Lesser General Public License Version 2.1 or later or 
the Mozilla Public License Version 1.1 or later.

When you managed to resolve the license issues, please re-assign the issue to me.
