# Revision history [back]

Dear William,

          This is purely part of the Punjabi culture.  It has nothing to do with Sikhism and Gurbani.   If you happen to live with the Punjabi Sikhs you will notice there are hundreds of Customs which are in fact contradictory to the teachings of Gurbani but today they are very much part of the Indian Punjabi Sikh traditions.


And the reason Punjabi Sikhs need not be blamed for all this is because almost all of the Punjabi Sikhs had Hindu ancestry. So, majority out of them still follow Hindu traditions or the right word to be used is, Indian traditions.
