Does anyone know a safe way to get from Tehran to India. I'd rather not fly but overland through Pakistan sounds dangerous.

It will not be dangerous Just be vigilent from Mashad (Iran) to Quetta (Pakistan)

Your route will be as under

Mashad - Mirjava (Iran border port)
Arrive Taftan (Pakistan custom post)
Taftan to Quetta take the bus stay overnight at PTDC motel if need be rooms are always available.
Quetta to Sukkur take train very scening thru Bolan pass
Sukkur Multan train or bus
Multan lahore
Lahore - Amrastar (India)

its not really dangerous but you have to just do it. you just need to be extra careful and alert. i think that only the Baluchistan area in Pakistan has a slight potential for being dangerous. it has activity of banditgroups. i would recommend to to go to the border Iran/Paki as early as possible in the morning. take from Taftan a direct bus to Quetta (14 hours). travelling during daylight is probably safer. the rest is peanuts, i assure you.
