fluorescent light as junction box

Is it ok to use a fluorescent light as a junction box? I wanted to Daisy chain 4 light fixtures in a row. With power coming in one end of the fixture and inside the light fixture have a pigtail and power leaving the other end to the next light. I would be using romex cable with the correct clamps going into the knockouts. I was told that this is incorrect and each light should be wired separate.
