Can a girl ask for equal share in parents property?
I thought that Indian women have equal share in parents property. But my brother tells me that the women get share from the parents share. Suppose parents have 3 sons and 2 daughters, they divide into 4 parts(3 sons + parents)and the daughters have the right to ask for parents share(1/4 th). Is that true?

In India as per Hindu Succession Act, even a girl is eligible for equal share in the property. However, since you have not specified your religion i would not be able to advice you specifically. However, if u don't belong to a hindu undivided family and are a Hindu by birth, your brother is wrong, because you will be able to claim equal rights in the property.
