However there's no reason why you can't involve such individual examples in talking about general groups.

The problem is, the individuals he was talking about were all from a narrow sub-section and not a representative sample of the whole group he claimed to address.

Since his entire article only referenced Asian Muslims ( no mention of any non-Muslims or non-Asians) he should have restricted his claims to them alone and not generalised to all 'non-whites' as he put it.
