if property of your father iis a self acquired property then he has absolute right to decide about its future with respect to transfer,if it is an  ancestral property then your brother can claim 1/9 share in property

1. If the property is ancestral then your brother has an equal share therein which he can cull out through filing a suit for partition. Legal battle can be avoided if there is a consensus among all the 9 members to divide the property equally by making a deed of settlement. 

2. Your father can at his sweet will sell, gift,will or mortgage his self acquired property.
