My father's name was Mohammad Azad.
My father was born on February 13, 1930 in British India.
My father emigrated from Pakistan to the UK in 1974-75.
On February 13, 1980, my father was issued a British Certificate of Registration.
1974-75 when my father moved from Pakistan to the UK.
According to my information, my father's wife had two sons and a daughter in Pakistan.
After receiving the British Certificate of Registration in 1980, my father came to Pakistan, taking his wife, two sons and a daughter with him to the UK.
In the UK, my father raised two more sons and two daughters.
By 1988 my father had a wife, four sons and three daughters who lived in the United Kingdom.
In the last months of 1989, my father came to Pakistan from the UK
My father became interested in a woman (my mother) in Pakistan
My father married this woman(my mother) on 05-01-1990 in exchange for some conditions
My father and the woman(my mother) lived together
The woman(my mother) became pregnant
As I mentioned earlier, this wedding took place under certain conditions
My father refused to accept the terms
And he left his wife(my mother) and his baby(me) in the womb and went to Britain
The baby(me) was born on 24-12-1990
After the birth of the baby(me), the woman(my mother) divorced my father
My father came to Pakistan from the UK in 1994
My father recognized me as his son in the High Court of Azad Kashmir
My father agreed to pay my mother monthly for my upbringing
My father verbally told my mother that when this boy was older I would take him with me to the UK.
In those days my father returned to the UK again
When the High Court decided and my father went back to the UK, he died within a few months.
When my father died in the UK, my father's wife had four sons and three daughters in the UK with my father.
I was living with my mother in Pakistan at that time
At that time, I was 3 years and 9 months old
At the time of my father's death, my stepmother, my step sisters and my half-brother were with my father in the UK.
After my father's death, my stepmother, sisters and brothers seized all of my father's immigration papers, including my father's British certificate of registration and his British passport.
After the death of my father, his dead body was brought to Pakistan and buried
My father's bank balance and property were distributed by the court
My father's inheritance distribution certificate was issued by the court
In this I was declared an equal partner with my half-sisters and brothers
After splitting the court inheritance, my stepmother, sisters and brothers returned to the UK
Never again contacted me
I lived and studied in Pakistan
When I was growing up, people told me that your father was a British citizen
All of your father's children lived in the United Kingdom except your own
You, too, should go to the UK and try to live
I applied for British passport 2 times
I don't have my father's passport. Because those passports were taken over by my stepmother, my step-brothers and step-sisters when my father died in Britain.
My stepmother, step-brothers and step-sisters are not giving me father's passports to get me a British passport.
When, for the first time, my British passport application was rejected
I told the Home Office about the plot of my stepmother, brothers and sisters
The Home Office advised me to get the Subject Access Request
I made a Subject Access Request for information about my father's passports
The second time I applied for my British passport with my father's passport details.
But the British Passport Office paid no attention to it
A few days after applying for my British passport, the British Passport Office rejected my passport request without being interviewed.
The period during which my father came to Pakistan These days my father got his second British passport from Pakistan
Getting my father's British passport from Pakistan on wedding days This proves that my father was in Pakistan during that time
But the passport office also ignored my statement
How can I prove my relationship with my father?
My siblings are not ready to give me any documents of my father
Can I file a case against my siblings in a British court?

Whether you can get British passport, depend on whether you have a claim to British nationality.
From what you wrote you are very likely to be a British Citizen by descent (I'll ignore the descent part as it is irrelevant now)
In order to prove your claim to nationality you must
1) Show that your father was British Citizen - a copy of certificate of his naturalisation (or a number) should suffice - SAR should suffice
2) Prove that you are his son - you need a full birth certificate (the certificate must show his name & surname and your name & surname)
If HMPO still refuses, they must give you a reason - they can not refuse a passport 'willy - nilly'
If they do you can always threaten them with Judicial Review - this will force them to look into this matter very carefully.
I would advice against filling against your siblings - you would have to get a mandatory injunction - this is equitable remedy and not given as of right.
Given that there is potentially another route (SAR/JR) injunction is likely to be refused.
