Sorry but I think you'd have to bend over backwards to infer that as meaning all Asians are Muslim. It's pretty clear to me that he simply referred to those particular Muslims as Asians because they are.

Well, in that case his article should have restricted itself to Muslim or ex-Muslim people. Instead he just talks about Asian and non-whites in general. A stupid generalisation.

It's not a small point since so-called community pressures vary greatly depending on the religion of your parents. Which have very little to do with 'white atheist leaders'.
