If the properties are self acquired then your father has complete rights in distributing his property according to his will and wish. Further, in law there is no distinction between a son and daughter in property matters. Each of them share equally or as per the will of the testator.

your sister has got equal share in the ancestral property not in the self earned property of your father. After the amendment to sec 8 of Hindu succession act there is no difference between male and female, all are coparceners
