Because religion doesn't define relations.
Rakshabandhan is a standout amongst the most promising days in the Hindu schedule and an exceptional one for siblings. On this day, sisters all over India (and a few sections of Nepal) tie a hallowed string called Rakhi on the wrists of their brothers. This string connotes a power of profound devotion and security. Tying this string on a man's arm infers that he will undoubtedly secure his sister for eternity. These days you will also see a few adolescents in schools, workplaces, housing societies gathering together and celebrating Rakshabandhan.

In an interview, Huma said that, "While growing up, I would tie a rakhi to many individuals, however never to Saqib (grins).
