Present study presents an inbuilt idol of divinity among humans that is related with religion and discusses that how it plays a role in the development of an in-group and out group feel among us? To explain an assumed human interaction between persons belonging to an old religion Judaism and ancient religion Hinduism with reference to a Hindu religious concept ‘Karma’ and psychological construct “ambivalence” discussed to highlight the inbuilt idol of divinity. A brief survey finding also supported the proposition about in-group and out-group assumptions. More studies would develop further.
