And what is your apparent source?

According to sikhiwiki:

Sikhism is probably the only major organised world religion that does not promote fasting except for medical reasons. The Sikh Gurus discourage the devotee from engaging in this ritual as it is considered to "brings no spiritual benefit to the person".

It's more a Indian thing that because people over there are mostly are poor, have bad sources and add in alot of cultural stuff and you got yourself a meltingpot of witchcraft (not literally). One prevailing example is that the wife in the family fasts for the good health of the husband.
