What is the ruling on reciting surah fatiha behind the imam in loud prayers?

Shaykh Waleed Boghdady:

I go by the opinion that one needs to recite Faatihah (behind the imam) in loud prayers. There is a difference in opinion among the scholars regarding this issue, but some issues you need to stay on the safe side. Recite Faatihah behind the Imaam, even if the Imam’s recitation was too quick, yet one does recite it trying to follow the Imaam.
