The "religion of peace" keeps having problems with the "peace" part.

Police said 54-year-old Chaudhry Rashad was so angered that his daughter, Sandela Kanwal, planned to divorce her arranged-marriage husband that Rashad killed her after a heated argument at the family's home, FOX News affiliate MyFoxAtlanta reported.

Rashad was taken to the Clayton County jail where he reportedly confessed to strangling his 25-year-old daughter.

The news shocked neighbors and family friends.

"The family is very upset and stressed," said Shahid Malik of the Pakistani American Community of Atlanta. Malik told MyFoxAtlanta that he met with the family Sunday and said they were all traumatized.

Police said Kanwal hadn't seen her husband, who lives in Chicago, for months.
