why friction is not considered in fbd of pulley while it produce torque in one direction as it has tendency to rotate as you have drawn the figure showing friction in figure 

Please elaborate this

if you draw free body diagram of pully only without string then we have to show friction, but if you draw fbd of string + pulley as a system then you cannot show friction as it act on string also in opposite direction. Moreover , fR=(T2-T1)R. static friction is the cause of difference in tension
