Hindley votes claim lashed.
The Moors Murderer said she was still caged so the Tories could win votes.
But Ann West hit back, saying Home Secretary Michael Howard was "keeping her in for murdering four children".
The mum of tragic 10-year-old Lesley Ann Downey said: "My girl's buried and can never see sunlight again and neither should she.
"She should be buried alive. Let her try stepping out of prison and she will see what public opinion is.
"I have got the whole nation backing me. If she's released I will be going in for killing her."
And Winnie Johnson, mum of 12-year-old Keith Bennett - whose body has never been found - said:
"She's murdered children. I'd take away all privileges and leave her to rot."
Hindley made her claim from Durham jail in an Ox-ford University magazine.
She said Howard was treating her as "a piece of public property", to back his tough stance on crime and so get votes.
She likened herself to a "caged budgie", trapped by the Home Secretary's "sinister ability" to change rules governing "lifers".
She argued prison had made her older and wiser and that public outrage had not influenced her behaviour.
Hindley supporter Lord Longford also argued she was being kept in for votes and wasn't dangerous.
The Home Secretary said he hadn't made a decision on Hindley's case.
