The intellectual paradigm of the second Pahlavi government was to spread and promote a non-religious lifestyle. The second Pahlavi government sought to change the religious identity and expand the western culture by using all the available capacities and tools, especially by using the press and newspapers such as the daily information and future. This research investigates the promotion of western and non-Islamic lifestyle based on the newspapers of the second Pahlavi period. In this research, a historical research method based on qualitative method and content analysis and using first-hand and library sources has been done. The findings of the research indicate that in the second Pahlavi period, the tendency and desire for western life intensified. The second Pahlavi government consciously and purposefully sought to change people's thinking and lifestyle and tried to promote non-religious lifestyle. Also, the findings of the research show that the second Pahlavi period was the era of the peak of Western thinking in the society, so that all the tools and elements that were under the control and administration of the government promoted the non-religious lifestyle in a coordinated and integrated manner. With the expansion and deepening of the non-religious approach in people's lives, clerics and scholars and religious groups openly opposed and protested the government's plans. Therefore, the issues and events that happened in the course of modernity in the Iranian society affected the lifestyle of the people and pushed them towards a westernized life.
