In all seriousness, we need to reclaim these rooms around the country so they are used as intended.

I think a Christian group should meet as well as a Jewish group and possibly even Seiks (if they have communal prayer). Don't deliberately be there for muslim prayer times but also don't stop just for them.

Certainly the mats should be tidied up after each muslim session and a cross put up on a wall.

Share and share alike I say.
