Dr. Farooq, who attended the Friday prayers at Dargah Hazratbal, told the media after the prayers that the government should allow prayers when the situation becomes normal.
Former Jammu and Kashmir CM Farooq Abdullah demanded the release of Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, who has been under house arrest for the last four years.
