I get why Maan and Geet did their wedding by the hindu ritualsbecauseserials are not allowed to do a sikh wedding. I mean if they know they can't do that, just make geet and maan hindu.
But as you can see Geet's family is sikh. Her massi and Tej both wear khandas but yet they are celebratingkarva chauth. Sikhs do not celebrate<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">karva chauth! Also Geet wears sindoor and amangalsutra( which sikhs don't) In the previous episodes you see Dev with a ek onkar symbol in his car. But you see maan at the muslim temple in 2 or so episodes. Another thing is if Maan is suppose toplaya sardar , why is he wearing the Om necklace. Also you see Geet praying to Guru Nanak Devji and in one episode she said "she went to the mandhir"'</font>
<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">In the beginning of the show we see maan and geetprayingin the golden temple, but in the dhawali episode she was aarti. Sikhs do celebrate dhawali but they don't do Aarti.</font>
<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">Finally in the holy episode, after she gets mad at maan and leaves she goes to the gurdwara(Sikh temple). SIkh don't celebrate holy btw they celebratehola
<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">I mean why do CV's do that!!</font>
<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">they just mix religions together and make people think it is one religion.</font>
<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">They should just stick to one religion!</font>
<font color="#333333" face="tahoma, arial, verdana, sans-serif">No need to mix all the religions andconfuseus</font>
but what religion r they like mostly
i am not saying only this show does, a lot of shows do
Sikh weddings are not allowed to be shown? Erm, since when? I don't remember reading any rule about how it's not allowed or even any article about it. I know a lot of Hindu Punjabis that also wear the Sikh Kara on their wrist, it's because they are often brought up in a mixed background.Similarly, I know many Sikhs that celebrate Karvachauth and fast for their husband on this day. So what if Maan went to the 'Muslim temple'? In India there are so many Hindus that go and visit Ajmet Dargah in Rajasthan and at the same time there are many people from many different faiths that visit Siddhi Vinayak (Lord Ganesha temple in Mumbai). It doesn't mean that they don't follow their own religion.
Speaking from personal experience, despite coming from a Hindu background I still go to the Gurdwara and many elders in my family own a Khanda necklace.
I would also LOVE to go to the Golden Temple some day! There are many similarities between Hinduism and Sikhism and I think you'll find that a lot of Hindu Punjabis and Sikh Punjabis get along really well, and so there are some elements taken from both religions.
I think you're being a little narrow-minded and I honestly don't mean that as an insult or personal attack but if we all stuck to our culture and traditions then what fun would that be? I mean are you seriously trying to tell me that the only people to play Holi with colours in India are Hindus? If you seriously think that then please pay a visit to Mumbai some time and you will see Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Jains, Christians etc all celebrating this festival. It's like saying Christians aren't allowed to light up fireworks on Diwali because it isn't part of their culture or tradition.
I don't mind the mixing up of religions because honestly that is exactly what modern day India is all about. I celebrate Diwali and I also celebrate Vaisakhi by going to the temple, does that mean I am not a true Hindu? :\
