Sheikh, sometimes we see a group of people (muslim/non-muslim) openly doing bid’ah or evil. Can we talk (which they may not like) about them with our family members to remind ourselves of the gravity of these sins? Is this backbiting? We may refer to them by pronouns, such as “them, that group, those people”, but not with individual names.

If you want to warn others about them and their innovations, this is ok and it is not backbiting.
