India is a responsible nuclear power, unlike the rogue islamic states like iran. There is no way you can compare india with iran. India is also a country extremely peace loving, tolerant,democratic, secular and upholds the values of "ahimsa" i.e non-violence and is the land of Mahatma Gandhi. It is not a joke for the national security to uphold the geniune security needs of 1 billion indians,especially when they are surrounded by hostile neighbours and war mongerers. India is reeling under a tremendous energy deficit. It is in the light of these truths of crippling energy deficits, security concerns and,also pertaining to the common enemy of "terrorism" and jihad, that India welcomes the U.S and the West with open arms. India is not a muslim country by any means. Even though the vast majority of indians are hindus, indians pride themselves as a secular nation, not even as a hindu nation. India is also the second fastest emerging major economic superpower with 8% growth after china.
