Women standing up when the janaazah is picked up from the house

Q: I have attended many funeral gathering where I see that when the gents of the house carry the janaaza to take away for namaaz-e-janaaza, all the ladies gathered over there stand up. I want to know whether it is just a custom or this action has any relation to deen.

A: This is not a Sunnah practice.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
