Is my namaz valid without reciting surah fatiha behind Imam in congregation.

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem

Respected brother,

Your prayers are valid.

On the contrary, reciting Surah Fatihah behing Imam is Makruh Tahreemi (not permissible) according to the Hanafi Madhab.

See Fatawa Mahmudia (V7, Pg 52), Ahsanul Fatawa (V3, Pg 77).

And Allah knows best.
