Why did the British want Indians to export raw materials?
The British wanted the Indians to export raw materials to Britain as Indian raw materials were of good quality, low cost and also as the Indian market would accept the goods whose raw materials originated there. Another reason is that the British knew that once trade was successfully established, it would be easier to colonize Indian Princely States.

Asked in History of China
Did the Chinese start a war because they didn't tell anybody how to make silk?
No. China did not start the Opium wars. The Opium wars were started by the British, who desperately wanted Chinese products, but were not able to get any because the Chinese people were not interested in British imports. Britain finally discovered Opium, and quickly got the Chinese population addicted. When the emperor of the time banned Opium, Britain attacked China, which launched the Opium wars.
