even though China or saudi or Pakistan is not the topic one can connect these countries by the actions of same kind we we are discussing .
there is only one difference while France felt it is not right to declare it as a Christian state because it will negatively affect the rights and dignity of other sects of people .
on the other hand people of Pakistan and Saudi and many other nations never though of giving equal statues to all it's citizen.
in France when something goes against the spirit of it's constitution people their have the right to approach the court but in other countries people their can't do that because law of being secular is not their at the first place . so in one country they provide legal right to be treated as equal while in other countries they made the injustice , inequality to be legal ..

This is kind of a non democratic country demanding democracy in another country..
Yes you are right it does reek of hypocrisy but the kicker is the Muslim majority nations don't go around claiming to be secular so anybody who lives there knows what they are going to get whereas the "democratic" countries claim to be secular so they should grant equal rights to everyone or stop claiming to be something they are not. If Muslims know there is no religious freedom in France for them they will stop going to France it is as simple as that.
Moreover - So called deeds of a non-secular Islamic state (as per some views in here) can't be regarded as valid reasons for a secular state to execute non-secular acts.
