Your Dad's right is devolved upon you on his death and therefore his brothers and sisters cannot do anything without your consent. They cannot take away your right and transfer the property by simply producing the death certificates of your parents. They need to produce the legal heirship certificate also which will reveal you as his legal heir. So you are entitled to for a share in the property. However, they are free release their respective rights in the property in favour of one of the sisters, but that will not take away your right.

You have a lawful right on the property inherited by your father. So you can either contact other brothers / sisters of your father through a mediator and ask them to divide the property. If they refuse to do it, you can send a lawyer's notice to them for partition of the property. Even then, if they refuse to carryout partition you can file a partition suit before the court and the court will arrange to partition the property as per law.
