Why are there exceptions to Duverger's Law?

[Duverger's law](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duverger%27s_law) states that in a first past the post electoral system, the system will end up with a two party system. However, many countries with first past the post electoral systems (such as India, Canada, and the United Kingdom) do not have two party system. Why?
