Much as I detest Islam, I am finding it hard to link the story with the mosque !

Then why comment at all?  Except to make sure everyone knows you detest Islam?

because they seem to be making some implication several times about a mosque that has nothing to do with the story. Why not side of the road, why not at the lights?

There's no 'implication'

It's an easily identifiable landmark, nothing more.

 

Could have been a bank, a temple, a Honda store - whatever - and the article would have referred to that as the location instead. This guy just happened to stop outside a mosque. That's the link. 

 

You've just got your knickers in a twist because you detest Islam, and this chap got robbed near a mosque.

Move on!
