I don't give a crap for sharria law or whatever the hell you call that. I don't even really know what that is.
All I know is that the best way of making someone realise that what they are doing is bad, is to make them go through the same thing as their victim. Except if what they did to their victim is extremely bad, then this concept does not apply.

The point is to prevent the bahvior before it occurs, which means as a parent you would need to be active in your childrens lives, teaching them right form wrong, preferably before the situation arises. If the children are not taught that its wrong to not only bully a person, but to break their jaw in the process, then what makes you think corrective action will work?
That bassackward argument is the problem, not the solution.
Prevention works a lot better than blaming the problem on something else later on. At least in the first one, all partioes might actually learn something, where if we use your argument, no one has learned a thing, inluding the parent, because, again, blame is being placed on the kids instead of where it belongs - on the parents.
