Hello Students
Ionic solids contains ions holder together with strong electrostatic force together and thus do not conduct electricity in solid form.
In molten state, these ions dissociate in water and are free to conduct electricity.

In the molten state , ionic solids dissosciate give free ions and hence can conduct electricity .However , in the solids state .Since the ion are not free to move but remains held together by strong electrostatics forces of attraction .Therefore , they are electrical insulator.
