That sounds rather harsh. What should the goal of the criminal justice system be? To punish people? As for Sharia Law and deportation, the British criminal justice system must operate according to some system of values and to say that one group of people are subject to different treatment basically implies that they are not 'real' British subjects. What you are in effect doing is continuing racist discourses as this is the underlying implication in historical colonization - 'they are not real subjects of this country!' Do you know if these people have their citizenship or permanent resident card?
I wouldn't make the assumption that all Muslims in the UK want Sharia Law, btw.
