Yes it can be called hypocritical. But IMO India should take a leaf out of China's book and publish our own yearly reports.
US and China spar over human rights - Hindustan TimesThe US has no right to play the world's human rights judge as its own human rights record is notorious, China said over the weekend, accusing Washington of using rights issues to meddle in other countries' affairs. Issuing its own report on human rights a day after the US released its 36th report on the state of rights in other countries, Beijing said the US's own record was tarnished.
Titled, "Human Rights Record of the United States in 2011" and released by the Information Office of the State Council, the report from China is now in its 13th year of publication.
According to reports here, it examined six areas - life, property and personal security, civil and political rights, economic, social and cultural rights, racial discrimination, the rights of women and children and US violations of human rights in other countries - to reveal the "true human rights situation of the US." It also urged the US to "stop using double standards for human rights" to "tarnish other countries' image and promote hegemony."
