I am a Christian girl married a Hindu boy according to Hindu rites and customs in July 2014. I, my husband and our two children (son, daughter) lived in the house self-acquired by his Grandmother. My Grandmother-in-law expired in December 2016 leaving behind a will dividing the house in three equal shares one for my husband and the other two for my husband’s two married sisters. In June 2017 my husband expired. Now my husband’s sisters say that only my husband would get the share mentioned in will I am not entitled to it and his share will be divided among them as their names appear on the will. Is this true? After my husband death do I have the right to claim his share mentioned in the will? Please advise.

Yes you have right to seek the share of your husband in the property as before his death he had I inherited that share by virtue of the Will left by his mother. You as widow can claim the self acquired portion of the husband in the property and if you're denied your right and share seek legal redressal by filling partition suit of the property in the Civil court.
