The JuD chief, while hailing the martyrdom of Wani, urged Muslims to unite for liberation of Kashmir from India.
Saeed and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen founder Sayeed Salahuddin had earlier vowed to avenge Wani's killing by security forces.
Hizbul had earlier held a small prayer meeting in the memory of Burhan Wani at its Muzaffarabad base on Saturday. The gathering was addressed by both Saeed and Salahuddin during which they vowed to take revenge of Wani's killing and hailed his 'martyrdom'.
The duo addressed the gathering of Hizbul militants from a makeshift stage which also had posters of slain terrorist Burhan Wani.
Hafiz Saeed, who was accompanied by some of the key members of JuD's cyber cell, also held extensive meetings with Hizb-ul chief Sayeed Salahuddin and his close associates in Muzaffarabad.
