Do Hindu women have right to their father's property?

Anil and Mukesh Ambani have divided Dhirubhai's business between them.
Dhirubhai has daughters too. It appears they have not received any share in the business assets. This is discrimination.

Similarly I find Muslims do not give share in the business establishments to their daughters. A woman gets half of what her brother gets only in property such as house, lands, bank deposits, but not in business. This needs to be clarified.

As I see it, uniform civil code is the only solution. More than Muslim, Hindu women will benefit. If bill on uniform civil code is introduced, Hindu MPs will not allow it to be passed. They will fight using unimaginative Muslim leaders.
