Well, what kind of situation would the simple present tense represent here?

In Czech you can say držíš for keep, but that is not the primary meaning and I think not the meening intended here. And that would be "Why do you keep...", not hold. Or does hold have that meaning? Even if it did I probably wouldn't accept it.
